By accessing this resource, you agree to the Spectrum licence.
While carrying out any of the Spectrum procedures you will need to record various items of information. Spectrum describes these information requirements at two levels:
- Units of information – the basic building blocks of information. Often (though not necessarily) these will correspond to the fields in collection management systems. Computerised systems that are Spectrum Compliant have a place for recording all the units of information you might need to record during all 21 procedures.
- Information groups – these are sets of units of information, grouped together for convenience.
Clicking the link on this page will allow you to download a Word document that summarises the changes proposed to the units of information in Spectrum 5.0.
