The members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) have submitted a Request for Comments (RFC) on
version 0.2.2 of the Earth Observation (EO) Products Extension Package for ebRIM (ISO/TS 15000-3) Profile of CSW 2.0 (OGC document 06-131).

ebRIM is the electronic business Registry Information Model from the OASIS standards organization. Catalog Services – Web (CSW) is an OGC standard that specifies a catalogue application profile based on ISO19115:2003/ISO19119:2005 metadata with support for XML encoding per ISO/CD TS 19139 and HTTP protocol binding.

The EO Products Extension Package for ebRIM Profile of CSW 2.0 draft standard is an OGC Best Practice. It specifies an Application Profile of CSW 2.0 that is based on the OpenGIS Geography Markup Language
(GML) Encoding Standard Application Schema for EO Products.

The 30 day public comment period begins January 28, and ends February 27. After the OGC’s EO Extension Package Standards Working Group has addressed comments received in response to the RFC, the draft standard
will be submitted to the OGC Technical Committee and Planning Committee for their review and possible approval as an adopted OGC Standard.
