ISAD(G) says:

Purpose - To identify protocols on which description based

Rule – Record the international, national, and/or local rules or conventions followed in preparing the description.

We say:

For born digital materials, this element should be used in roughly the same way, although there may need to be reference to a more varied set of rules. Perhaps we should also be honest and say when we haven’t followed any rules or when we have only followed them very loosely?
