Issue 567: module for PC properties

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

In the 51st CIDOC CRM & 44th FRBRoo SIG meeting, upon discussing issue 560, the SIG decided to start a new issue, on where to define PC properties. 

PC properties will most likely be defined in a separate module, like for v.6.0 and v.6.2. A new PC property will have to be implemented (P189 approximates –P189.1 has type: E55 Type).
HW: PF, ETz to go through the previous versions of the module for PCs and then produce a new one. 

HW by PF & ETz submitted on Feb 10 2022


PC module 


In the 52nd joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 45th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting; PF presented the state of the issue. ETz has checked which .1 properties did not appear in the file that had been created for v.6.2. A new .1 property was added (P189.1 has type: E55 Type), a “Read Me” comment and a change log. The name of the file is “CRMpc_v1.2rdfs” Link to the file here.


  • name of the file: it is a derivative of a given version of the CRM, not an update to the last version of the rdf implementation of PC properties.
  • the comment should also comprise a compatibility statement with the relevant version. Should be added for each version there is an rdf implementation.
  • ideas how to word that: “Derivative of the CRM version xyz/ Compatible with the CRM version xyz”

Decision: Provide a new PC file for each version that comes with an rdf implementation: name it accordingly, add a compatibility statement in a comment and release it on the site (under relevant version)

Issue closed (nothing left to do)
