  • week dates expressed in terms of calendar year, calendar week number and calendar day of the week;

ISO 8601:2004 does not cover dates and times where words are used in the representation and dates and times where characters are not used in the representation.

ISO 8601:2004 does not assign any particular meaning or interpretation to any data element that uses representations in accordance with ISO 8601:2004. Such meaning will be determined by the context of the application.
