Registration Allocation Agencies
Member bodies of ISO implementing this standard shall be responsible for the assignment of identifiers for libraries and related organizations within their borders. The ISIL shall be administered by appropriate national agencies whose role is widely accepted in the library/museums/archive sector(s) within the country. The Registration Authority will contact the national body of ISO if any doubt about which body is to run the national allocation agency.
For country code prefixes, each country is responsible for the assignment of identifiers for libraries and organizations within its borders. The body responsible for assignment and maintenance of the codes under a country code prefix will be registered with the ISIL Registration Authority. At the national level, the ISIL structure will be administered by appropriate national agencies whose role is widely accepted in the ibrary/museums/archive sector(s) within the country.
For non-country code prefixes, the body responsible for the codes under the prefix will be registered at the ISIL Registration Authority at the time of registration of the prefix.
Agencies can contact ISIL/RA with application for appointement as Registration Allocation Agency by sending an email using this template to firstname.lastname@example.org.
