ASIS 83 is the ASIS interface to Ada 83 (ANSI 1815A:1983 equivalent to ISO/IEC 8652:1987). The specification for ASIS 83 is provided in the ASIS 83 Documents and Artifacts section.
ASIS 95 is the ASIS interface to Ada 95 (ISO/IEC 8652:1995). ASIS 95 is
now available as ISO/IEC 15291:1999.
Additional information about ASIS can be found in the
ASIS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
Background on ASISWG
The ASIS Working Group (ASISWG) was initially chartered by the
Association for Computing Machinery's (ACM) Special Interest Group on
Ada (SIGAda) on 8 February 1993 to develop and participate in
standardizing an implementation independent application programming
interface to allow retrieval of the information stored within an Ada
compiler's compilation database.
ASISWG developed ASIS83 and is nearing completion of development for ASIS 95. ASISWG is cooperating with ASISRG, who is responsible for the international standardization of ASIS 95. With the initial goal achieved for ASIS83, the ASISWG charter has undergone revisions:
ISO/IEC 15291:1999The ASIS Standard is available via the ISO Catalog at http://www.iso.ch/infoe/catinfo.html; the ASIS specific reference is located at http://www.iso.ch/cate/d27169.html.

Countries using ASIS include: Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, Switzerland, UK, and the US. ASISRG and ASISWG are currently working together to evolve ASIS to support Ada 95. All interested parties are invited to participate.
