The identity community uses a plethora of specialist terminology. In order to try and standardise the vernacular OIX has created a separate Glossary of Identity Terms.
The glossary identifies common synonyms for the terms used by OIX. It also includes the rationale for choosing to use some key terms and the list of alternatives considered.
From July 2020 all terminology used in OIX papers and guides is consistent with this glossary.
