EIP v1.1 Specification


The Energy Industry Profile (EIP) v1.1 is Energistics’ metadata exchange specification developed using input and requirements provided by members of the global energy community.  It is designed to enable efficient discovery, evaluation and retrieval of diverse information resources from widely distributed repositories.

The EIP is an ISO Conformance Level 1 profile of the widely adopted international standards ISO 19115-1:2014 which provides XML implementation guidance with reference to ISO Technical Specification 19115-3:2016.  The primary changes represented in EIP v1.1 are updates to the XML in the implementation guidance and examples it contains.  As a result of these updates, XML represented in EIP v1.1 are conformant with the ISO 19115-3:2016 XML schema.  Other changes represented in EIP v1.1 are summarized in the Amendment History table presented on page 3 of the specification.
