This part of ISO/IEC 15459 specifies the procedural requirements to maintain identities and outlines the obligations of the Registration Authority. This part of ISO/IEC 15459 excludes those entities where ISO has designated Maintenance Agencies or Registration Authorities to provide identity and/or identifier schemes. It does not apply to:
- freight containers, because their unique coding is specified in ISO 6346, Freight containers - Coding, identification and marking;
- vehicles, because their unique identification is specified in ISO 3779, Road vehicles - Vehicle identification number (VIN) - Content and structure;
- car radios, because their unique identification is specified in ISO 10486, Passenger cars - Car radio identification number (CRIN).
The exclusion also applies to:
- ISO 2108, Information and documentation - International standard book number (ISBN) and ISO 3297, Information and documentation - International standard serial number (ISSN);
NOTE The scope of each of ISO 2108 and ISO 3297 identifies the title rather than the individual copy of a book or periodical. As such, the level of identification achieved is at a level similar to the unique identity as defined in ISO/IEC 15459-6. Individual copies of a title (book or periodical) may be identified using ISO/IEC 15459-4.
