This document defines the design considerations and guidance by which UK public sector Universal Resource Identifier (URI) sets should be developed and maintained. They are designed both to encourage those that definitively own reference data to make it available for re-use, and to give those that have data that could be linked, the confidence to re-use a URI set that is not under their direct control.

Keywords: HTTP URIs, Dereferencability, Content negotiation, Government Open Data
