MISMO Engineering Guideline (MEG) 40

MISMO Engineering Guideline (MEG) 40 provides guidance for the Data Point and Container Definition Guidelines. MEG 40 was released for a 30 day Public Comment Period which ends on June 18th.

MISMO's Architecture Workgroup has recently made adjustments to MEG 40 to account for the following:

  • Renamed MEG to include "Container" definitions.
  • Modified the Introduction to remove XML specific language.
  • Changed the word "All" to "Any" in section 40.2.1.
  • Removed exception language in 40.4.
  • Added 40.2.3 and 40.2.4 definition rules for detail containers.

The release and use of MISMO standards and other resources, including the MISMO Engineering Guide (MEG) 40, are governed by the MISMO Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy. For more information on the policy, please click here.
