<suppl-type> Supplement Type

For documents which are supplements to a standard, this element names the kind of alteration or addition that is represented by this supplement.


This element is only applicable to supplements; standards documents that are not supplements should not use this element.
ISO Note
This element, as currently used in ISO-related documents, is expected to have the following content:
  • amd” (Amendment)
  • cor” (Technical Corrigendum)
  • add” (Addendum). Some published ISO Addenda are still valid. But ISO and some ISO-related standards organizations no longer publish Addenda, so the “add” will be uncommon.
