If a publisher uses a vocabulary of 99 (i.e. ‘Reporting Organisation’), then the @vocabulary-uri attribute should also be used, for example:

<humanitarian-scope type="1" vocabulary="99" vocabulary-uri="http://example.com/vocab.html" code="5">
  <narrative>Nepal Earthquake (April 2015)</narrative>
</humanitarian-scope>
The humanitarian-scope element can be repeated in any iati-activity.
  <humanitarian-scope type="1" vocabulary="1-2" code="EQ-2015-000048-NPL">
 	  <narrative>Nepal Earthquake April 2015</narrative>
    <narrative xml:lang="fr"> Népal Earthquake Avril 2015</narrative>
  </humanitarian-scope>
  <humanitarian-scope type="1" vocabulary="99" vocabulary-uri="http://example.com/vocab.html" code="A1">
   <narrative xml:lang="en">Nepal Earthquake April 2015</narrative>
  </humanitarian-scope>
