ETIM Classification

"Product classification is simply a logical, unambiguous classification (taxonomy) of products in different product classes (categories), designed so that anyone within the sector can communicate about those products without misunderstandings. The ETIM model gives a listing of the most important technical characteristics of each product class to describe and find the products. Each class has several synonyms, thereby finding the right product is much easier for everyone! (...) Uniform product classification in itself is not a final product as it is.

ISO 8147:1995 Shipbuilding and Marine Structures - Derrick Rigs and Component Parts Vocabulary

"This International Standard establishes the vocabulary for the various terms in use relative to the most important components of derrick rigs on ships. It lays down terms and definitions used in connection with derrick rigs, and adds terms for winches in accordance with ISO 3828. Where more than one term is given for a concept, the first term is the preferred one and others, although used within the marine industry, are non-preferred. Deprecated terms are also so indicated. A multilingual vocabulary is given in annex A, arranged numerically in the order of the reference numbers;"

FAO Glossary of Biotechnology for Food and Agriculture

"The 'Glossary of Biotechnology for Food and Agriculture' is a revised, augmented version of the 'Glossary of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering' published by FAO in 1999. The idea for such a collection of terminology associated with the rapidly expanding fields related to or deriving from biotechnology and genetic engineering, was stimulated by the difficulty of communicating effectively in discussions at intergovernmental level. On various occasions, simple differences of interpretation of terminology have threatened to de-rail negotiations of international importance.

PRODCOM List

"PRODCOM is the title of the EU production statistics for Mining, Quarrying and Manufacturing, i.e. Sections B and C of the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community (NACE Rev. 2). The title comes from the French 'PRODuction COMmunautaire' (Community production). The headings of the PRODCOM list are derived from the Harmonized System (HS) or the Combined Nomenclature (CN), which thus enables comparisons to be made between production statistics and foreign trade statistics.

International Patent Classification

"The International Patent Classification (IPC), established by the Strasbourg Agreement 1971, provides for a hierarchical system of language independent symbols for the classification of patents and utility models according to the different areas of technology to which they pertain.
The IPC divides technology into eight sections with approximately 70,000 subdivisions. Each subdivision has a symbol consisting of Arabic numerals and letters of the Latin alphabet.

Industry Classification Benchmark

"The Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB) is a definitive system categorizing over 70,000 companies and 75,000 securities worldwide, enabling the comparison of companies across four levels of classification and national boundaries. The ICB system is supported by the ICB Database, an unrivalled data source for global sector analysis, which is maintained by FTSE Group. 10 industries, 19 supersectors, 41 sectors, 114 subsectors."

Central Product Classification

"The name 'Central Product Classification' is intended to indicate that the purpose of CPC is to provide a framework for international comparison of various kinds of statistics dealing with goods, services and assets. Basically, CPC is intended to be used for different types of statistics, for example, industrial statistics and national accounts, price statistics, foreign trade statistics (including trade in services) and balance-of-payments statistics."
