Call for Comments: Revision of Encoded Archival Context - Corporate bodies, Persons, Families

The Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Standards is pleased to release Encoded Archival Context - Corporate bodies, Persons, Families (EAC-CPF) 2.0, a draft updated version of the standard for public review and comment. To ensure the greatest possible input from EAC-CPF users around the world, the subcommittee is calling for comments on the proposed changes to the current version, EAC-CPF 2010. The deadline for comments on the change proposals is June 30, 2021.

The process for a major revision for EAC-CPF started in 2017, following the 2015 merger of the Technical Subcommittees on EAD and EAC-CPF and the Schema Development Team into the Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Standards (TS-EAS). This major revision aims to modernize the schema in terms of:

  • simplifying where possible, 
  • aligning with EAD where useful, 
  • implementing features and solutions upon users’ request,
  • clearing up unused components.

For details on the new and updated encoding see the Revision notes

The current timetable for this revision process is as follows:

  • June 30, 2021: Deadline for comments
  • July - October 2021: Including Comments and Change requests
  • December 2021: Publish revised version

In completing the revision process, the subcommittee will take account of the current implementation practice. It will endeavor to encourage continued adoption of EAC-CPF as a tool for the online dissemination of archival information by ensuring that EAC-CPF is as economical and straightforward as possible to implement and use.
