Both see:

http://xml.coverpages.org/ISO-FDIS-8601.pdf 

We have time intervals (5.5) and Recurring time-intervals (5.6)

To ISO 8601 an "interval" is 
3.17 period of time (time-interval) portion of time between two time points

This is the meaning of "date range" in common use by among others the Dublin core.
