Classification of Eye Movement Abnormalities and Strabismus

"The design and conceptual foundation of the CEMAS classification scheme follows traditional ideas and attempts to remain clinically pragmatic. The scheme describes three broad categories of abnormalities: 1) Horizontal Deviations, 2) Vertical Deviations and Special Forms of Strabismus, and finally, 3) Nystagmus and Other Ocular Oscillations and is comprised of eight major areas."

Classification of Pesticides by Hazard

"This document sets out a classification system to distinguish between the more and the less hazardous forms of selected pesticides based on acute risk to human health (that is the risk of single or multiple exposures over a relatively short period of time). It takes into consideration the toxicity of the technical active substance and also describes methods for the classification of formulations.

Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals

"The goal of the GHS is to identify the intrinsic hazards found in substances and mixtures and to convey hazard information about these hazards. The criteria for hazard classification are harmonized. Hazard statements, symbols and signal words have been standardized and harmonized and now form an integrated hazard communication system. The GHS will allow the hazard communication elements of the existing systems to converge. Competent authorities will decide how to apply the various elements of the GHS based on the needs of the competent authority and the target audience."

Classification of Forest Products

"This classification is designed to cover the wood and wood-based products for which FAO and ECE collect statistics on a regular basis. Included is wood taken from forests or from trees outside the forest, bark and cork; charcoal; wood and wood-based materials resulting from the first processing of the wood available from forest operations (including sawnwood, railway sleepers, veneer sheets, wood pulp and wood residues); and materials resulting from further processing of some of these materials (e.g. wood-base panels, paper and paperboard); waste paper and recoverable wood products.

United States Department of Agriculture Thesaurus

"The thesaurus is organized into 17 subject categories, indicated by the 'Subject Category' designation. The subject categories are used to browse the Thesaurus in a specific discipline or subject area. The subject scope of agriculture is broadly defined in the thesaurus, and includes terminology in the supporting biological, physical and social sciences. Biological nomenclature comprises a majority of the terms in the thesaurus and is located in the 'Taxonomic Classification of Organisms' Subject Category. Political geography is mainly described at the country level.

Patent- och registreringsverket Tesaurus

"Tesaurus är en databas med utvalda och kontrollerade ämnesord som delvis är hierarkiskt ordnade. Ämnesorden är sökbara i fritext i de databaser där indexering används som en extra sökhjälp."

"Thesaurus is a database of selected and controlled subject that is partly organized hierarchically. Subjects are searchable in free text in the database where the index is used as an additional search help."

Australian Occupational Health and Safety Thesaurus

"The scope of AOHST is to cover concepts relevant to OHS in Australia at national, State and local level. Some concepts are international, but the emphasis is given to the Australian context wherever necessary. The aim is to limit the size of the thesaurus to no more than 3,000 terms. This is to ensure that it is relatively easy to review and keep up-to-date. The terminology currently included in AOHST is OHS specific. This means that certain areas which are peripheral to the NOHSC’s priorities, such as compensation and insurance, are less developed at this stage.
