This is the reference page for the XML element condition. See also the relevant overview pages: Conditions, Conditions


Description of one condition attached to the activity.



A machine readable code describing the type of thing being referenced. The value should be available on a related codelist.

This value must be of type xsd:string.

This value must be on the ConditionType codelist.


ISO 2 letter code specifying the language of text in this element.

This value should be on the Language codelist.

Example Usage

Example condition attached, with ConditionType code 1 (Policy):

  <conditions attached="1">
   <condition type="1">Conditions text</condition>

From version 1.04, the schema allows the xml:lang attribute to also be included in the sub-element condition | | Example of an iati-activity with two conditions, declared in the default language of en, and also fr:

  <conditions attached="1">
   <condition type="1">Conditions text</condition>
   <condition xml:lang="fr" type="1">Conditions texte</condition>
   <condition type="2">Conditions text</condition>
   <condition xml:lang="fr" type="2">Conditions texte</condition>



It was always the intention of the standard that a condition could be specified in different languages but the schema has never allowed it.
This has now been fixed.
