ISO/IEC 15897 (Procedures for the registration of cultural elements) 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.

The standard was produced by Working Group 20 (WG20) of the JTC/1 SC22 committee, but in 2006 the standard was transferred to the JTC/1 SC35 committee. The registry is maintained by Danish UNIX-systems User Group (DKUUG),[1] although it has not been updated since December 2001.[2] The standard was confirmed in 2017, following a five-yearly systematic review.[1]

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.
