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
  • a handle

It may be human readable (such as a key) or not (such as a handle or uuid) depending on the context of its usage (which has to be determined by local agreement).
IFC4 CHANGE Attribute renamed from ItemReference for consistency.
3NameIfcLabel? Optional name to further specify the reference. It can provide a human readable identifier (which does not necessarily need to have a counterpart in the internal structure of the document).X
S[0:?]Reference to all associations between this external reference and objects within the IfcResourceObjectSelect that are tagged by the external reference.
