Attribute inheritance
1LocationIfcURIReference? Location, where the external source (classification, document or library) can be accessed by electronic means. The electronic location is provided as an URI, and would normally be given as an URL location string.
IFC4 CHANGE  The data type has been changed from IfcLabel to IfcURIReference
2IdentificationIfcIdentifier? The Identification provides a unique identifier of the referenced item within the external source (classification, document or library). It may be provided as
  • a key, e.g. a classification notation, like NF2.3
