We are pleased to announce the publication of the Common Specifications for the Information Packages and E-ARK SIP/AIP/DIP, one new procedure regarding a CITS interoperability assessment framework and an updated version of the eHealth2 guideline, following the issues in GitHub and the publication of the E-ARK eArchiving Content Information Type Specifications in August 2021.

The updates to the information package specifications focus on updates and clarifications used in the language of the specifications besides layout updates in the presentation. When looking especially at the AIP changes have been made so it reflects the proposals presented in the White Paper published in summer 2021.

We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who provided feedback to us in this process - your contributions to this work have been crucial to moving the specifications forward for wider community adoption.
