This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the procedures for operating the International Registration Authority for assignment of values to ASN.1 object identifier arcs beneath the top-level arc {joint-iso-itu-t}. Assignment of the authority to allocate arcs beneath such arcs is either given to a specific area of work approved jointly by ISO/IEC and ITU-T (and is normally recorded in Recommendations | International Standards) or is given to an international organization producing open standards.
