INSPIRE Schema Updates

The release of a number of major version INSPIRE application schema updates (v4.x to v5.0) has been announced. The first major version update in nearly a decade.

Major version updates can include breaking changes that are not backwards compatible. Breaking changes have also been introduced to v4.0 schemas, although no major version change was made. The Joint Research Commission (JRC) has indicated that the new schema versions will be used in the 2025 Monitoring.

The official INSPIRE Validator has incorporated the new schema versions; currently data which is compliant against older schema versions will validate against the test "Validation against declared schema" in the Conformance Class 'INSPIRE GML application schemas, however it will not validate against the "Validation against INSPIRE official schema" test in the theme-specific conformance classes that have experienced a schema update, for example Conformance Class 'GML application schema, Protected Sites.
