ISO/IEC 15897 is an ISO standard for the registration of new POSIX locales and POSIX charmaps. This standard is the result of a "fast-track" adoption of CEN ENV 12005, a European prestandard published by CEN. It was originally published in 1999, and a second edition was published in 2011.

Items registered in the registry are:

  • Narrative Cultural Specifications
  • POSIX Locales
  • POSIX Charmaps
  • Repertoiremaps

It overlaps somewhat with the CLDR project hosted at the Unicode Consortium.

The registry has not been updated since December 2001.[1]
