Volume and file structure


To facilitate the interchange of information on media by specifying the format on the recorded structures that contain descriptive information about volumes and the files/directories recorded on the media.

Programme of work:

  1. To specify volume and file structure standards for media used in interchange.
  2. To specify such standards so that they are independent, where possible, of the standards for the underlying medium.
  3. To constitute a coherent family of standards where possible.
  4. To assume responsibility for the maintenance of Ecma Standards prepared by TC31-TG3.
  5. To maintain liaison with other standards organizations (ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 23 and SC 29, IEC TC100, OSTA) in order to present Ecma proposals to them and to make comments on their proposals.
