The semantic correspondence requirements facilitate semantic interoperability by making explicit how the information definition conforms to the semantics of the AIRM.

The requirements include SWIM-INFO-013 through SWIM-INFO-019 of the specification. The relationship between the requirements, including the number of the requirement, are visualised below.

The ideal situation is to have all the concepts in the information definition mapped to the AIRM. However, this is not always possible (e.g. when the information definition contains new concepts which have not been captured by the AIRM) or desirable (e.g. when the information definition has concepts that are not in the scope of the AIRM).

The specification allows different formats to be used in establishing the correspondence. It is also silent on the exact methods to be adopted in order to build the semantic correspondences. This section of the handbook gives examples to be followed.
