Content creation

The ECLASS maintenance process is based on ISO requirements and similar to the maintenance process of other standards as e.g. the DIN property server. To facilitate the development of the standard for every interested user, the ECLASS ContentDevelopmentPlatform (formerly knows as ServicePortal) was developed as an online platform to give every user the possibility to submit change requests for the standard. The ECLASS association distinguishes three different types of releases that will be described in the following section. In 2021, the ECLASS board decided to only publish Major Releases from Release 12.0 onwards.
