Type of Standards


This International Standard: ⎯ defines a reference Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) covering basic information-related
components of land administration (including those over water and land, and elements above and below
the surface of the earth);
⎯ provides an abstract, conceptual model with four packages related to
1) parties (people and organizations);
2) basic administrative units, rights, responsibilities, and restrictions (ownership rights);
3) spatial units (parcels, and the legal space of buildings and utility networks);
4) spatial sources (surveying), and spatial representations (geometry and topology);
⎯ provides terminology for land administration, based on various national and international systems, that is
as simple as possible in order to be useful in practice. The terminology allows a shared description of
different formal or informal practices and procedures in various jurisdictions;
⎯ enables the combining of land administration information from different sources in a coherent manner.
The following is outside the scope of this International Standard:
⎯ interference with (national) land administration laws that may have any legal implications;
⎯ construction of external databases with party data, address data, valuation data, land use data, land
cover data, physical utility network data, archive data and taxation data. However, the LADM provides
stereotype classes for these data sets to indicate which data set elements the LADM expects from these
external sources, if available; and
⎯ modelling of land administration processes.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.

When things don't work as they should, it often means that standards are absent.
