Universal Character Set

Type of document:
Standard
Organization:
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC2
Year:
2012
Description:
ISO/IEC 10646, "Universal Multiple-Octet Coded Character Set," defines the Universal Character Set (UCS) as a character encoding. ISO 10646 and Unicode define the same characters with the same numbers, however, Unicode adds additional constraints and rules. ISO 10646 is a simple character map, an extension of previous standards like ISO 8859.
Workflow stage:
1.2, 1.3
Business value:
The official way to implement this standard is to use Unicode, since Unicode imposes additional constraints that are not part of ISO 10646.
