Technical data standards bind business data standards to a specific technical representation.
This technical data standard binds the qualification element business data standard to an XML Schema representation.
This standard defines a building block from which qualifications can be defined. The qualification element (QE) can represent an option, module, unit, component of a qualification. The QE is also used to define assessable eg examinations, performances etc and the rules of combination of QEs for a Qualification.
This is version 6.0, it replaces version 5.0 of the technical data standard.
