Encoded Archival Context (EAC)


The People Australia program uses the Encoded Archival Context for Corporate bodies, Persons and Families (EAC-CPF) standard to exchange records about parties.

EAC-CPF, released in March 2010, is a rich standard designed to support the detailed description of parties which groups name variants for a party and, where available, includes biographical and contextual information, references to related resource records, references to related parties and details about a party's function, field of activity or occupation.
