There are three main types of policy:

  • Principles define the overall values and guidelines for the governance program
  • Obligations define specific actions or processing that must be accommodated
  • Approaches define best practices for how an asset should be implemented and managed.


  • Governance policies are types of GovernanceDefinitions which are located in model 0401. The governance drivers are defined in model 0405.
