- Type of document:
- ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC2
- 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.
