<nat-meta> ISO-specific National-Body Metadata

This element is a container element for metadata specific to or produced by an ISO-related national standards body. This element contains any national-organization-specific overrides to the metadata described for the whole standards document (<std-doc-meta>) as well as the organization-specific metadata for the national standards body.


Best Practice

Organizations that have not used ISO STS in the past, should use the NISO STS element <std-meta> instead of the element <nat-meta>.
Inside an Adoption
The element <nat-meta> cannot be used inside the front matter for an adoption (<adoption-front>); only <std-meta> may be used at the top level of an adoption. The element <nat-meta> can be used in the front matter of a standard (<front>).
Related Elements
The element <nat-meta> is the fourth of the organization-describing metadata elements with: <std-meta>, <iso-meta>, and <reg-meta>. By design, the <nat-meta> content model is very similar to and was based on the model for <iso-meta>.
