- In contrast to the inferred view, the stated view does not include inferences generated by applying a description logic classifier.
- Before July 2018, the stated view was represented by a combination of subtype relationships and attribute relationships distributed in the Stated Relationships File.
- During a transitional period commencing with the July 2018 release of the International Edition, some elements of the stated view are represented as axioms, that conform to the OWL functional syntax. These axioms are distributed in the OWL axiom reference set file. At the end of the transitional period, this form of representation will completely replace the Stated Relationships File which will be deprecated.
