Registered Organization Vocabulary Draft Published

The W3C Government Linked Data Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of Registered Organization Vocabulary. This is a vocabulary for describing organizations that have gained legal entity status through a formal registration process, typically in a national or regional register. It focuses solely on such organizations and excludes natural persons, virtual organizations and other types of legal entity or ‘agent’ that are able to act. It should be seen as a specialization of the more flexible and comprehensive Organization Ontology.
