Question: anyone willing to prepare and present the compliance point of view from the SWIM Governance Implementation Project?


  • Agreed to be put as agenda point for the F2F. 
  • There should be a focus on interoperability. In particular: Is the service sufficiently described? Is the description valid? Is it complete?

    • Action: check what is the best way to coordinate on this subject.

  • One COI member mentions that AIRM conformance may come for free when using an Exchange Model (such as AIXM or FIXM) that is already traced to AIRM.
