GHSTS release packages

The versioning numbering scheme for GHSTS components is composed of a two digit major, a two digit minor and a two digit patch level number separated by single dots or dashes (xx.xx.xx). Major versions are used for global functional changes, minor versions for local changes and patch level versions for error corrections. Patch level versions do not require new versions of other GHSTS artefacts. The filename of the GHSTS picklist XSD is not changed when it is versioned, as it is referenced by the GHSTS submission XSD.

The following table shows the GHSTS release packages and their related file versions for specific GHSTS components.

Format specification

The GHSTS format specification document contains the GHSTS overall description and the definition for the GHSTS schema definition.

  • ghsts_02-00-00.pdf (Version 02.00.00; 4 199 KB; July 2019): Format specification document
GHSTS Schema definition 

The GHSTS submission schema definition contains the technical definition of the GHSTS XML backbone file and is supplied in XML schema definition format (XSD). The diagram gives an overview of the GHSTS Schema definition.

  • ghsts_02-00-00.xsd (Version 02.00.00; 69 KB; July 2019): GHSTS submission schema definition
  • ghsts_02-00-00.png (Version 02.00.00; 409 KB; July 2019): Overview diagram of the GHSTS Schema definition
Common Components (XSD)

The auxiliary Common Components XSD contains all XSD type definitions that are reused in order to avoid inconsistent definition of the same semantics across XSDs.  The Common Components XSD is imported into these XSDs if a type definition is to be reused.

Table of Contents (TOC) XSD

The Table of Contents XSD defines how to describe a Table of Contents in an XML file. The Table of Contents (ToC) (“dossier numbering system”) used in a GHSTS submission has a structure according to a standard Table of Contents defined by authorities.

  • toc_02-00-00.xsd (Version 02.00.00; 5 KB); Table of Contents (ToC) XSD)
  • toc_02-00-00.png (Version 02.00.00; 19 KB); Overview diagram of the ToC Schema definition)
Static representation XSLT

XSL transformation (XSLT) file that can be used to technically convert the XML backbone file to HTML.

  • StandaloneHTMLView.xsl (19 KB; July 2019): XSL transformation (XSLT)
  • CSV_Rendition.xsl (5 KB; July 2019):XSL transformation (XSLT) to render the XML backbone in an additional optional CSV format
Core picklist values

Upon generation of a GHSTS submission package the registrant has to supply metadata.  Some metadata has to be selected from a list of values supplied in a separate picklist file.  Picklists are implemented to harmonize the list of possible values, which could be submitted within a specific element. The picklists of type “Core” (CORE picklists) and the “Domain” picklists” for a submission in the pesticides regulated domain which are not regulatory authority specific, type “PPP picklists”, are managed by OECD member countries in the context of the OECD. They are considered GHSTS core components. Input is welcome on further elaboration of the picklist values.

National and Regional Dossier Table of Contents in XML

The Table of Contents (ToC) (“dossier numbering system”) used in a GHSTS submission has to have a structure according to a standard Table of Contents defined by authorities. These standard ToCs have been supplied by authorities as XML files below:
