If you have ever wondered how MoReq2 compares to other electronic records management standards, you may find the answer on this page.

Reconciliations between MoReq2 and other standards are difficult to produce, and can only be approximate.  Nonetheless, they are in great demand, so we are keen to add more resources to this page; please contact us if you know of other reconciliations, or mappings, that show how MoReq2 compares to other standards.


Reconciliation of MoReq2 and MoReq

MoReq2 itself contains a mapping that shows how its sections and  chapters relate to those of  the original MoReq.  See MoReq2 Appendix 8.

MoReq2 and Other Records-Related Standards

The Appendices of MoReq2 contain reconciliations between aspects of MoReq2 and various standards (not standard requirement specifications) as follows:

  • ISO 23081 (Records Management Metadata): MoReq2 Appendix 5.
  • ISO 15836 (Dublin Core): Appendix 5.
