Within the IATI organisation standard. the iati-organisation is the building block to describe organisations.
- iati-identifier is the unique reference for the organisation.
- name - a human-readable name of the organisation.
When using the IATI organisation standard to declare an iati-organisation, the following should be considered:
Every iati-organisation must use a globally unique iati-identifier
The iati-identifier should have no leading or trailing whitespace.
It is recommended that no forward slashes (/) or spaces should be contained within the iati-identifier.
- It is recommended to avoid spaces and non-ascii characters. For example:
- AA-AAA-123456789 is preferable to AA-AAA 123456789.
A default language and default-currency can be set for any iati-organisation. This can be overridden in subsequent elements.
The last-updated-datetime date must change whenever the value of any field within the associated iati-organisation are updated.
The name can be repeated for different languages.
The free-text instance of name should avoid use of text in CAPITALS, where possible.
Please also consider and refer to the Organisation Identifiers guidance when constructing an appropriate identifier.
