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.

International Classification of the Figurative Elements of Marks

"The Vienna Classification constitutes a hierarchical system that proceeds from the general to the particular, classifying the figurative elements of marks into categories, divisions and sections, on the basis of their shape. This publication contains the seventh edition of the Classification, which comprises a total of: 29 categories, 145 divisions, 806 main sections, and 903 auxiliary sections.
The examples of figurative elements relating to certain divisions, are included for information purposes only, and are therefore not an integral part of the Classification."

International Classification of Goods and Services for the Purposes of the Registration of Marks

"The Nice Classification (NCL) is an international classification of goods and services applied for the registration of trademarks and service marks. It was established by an international, multilateral agreement concluded at a Diplomatic Conference held in Nice in 1957: the Nice Agreement Concerning the International Classification of Goods and Services for the Purposes of the Registration of Marks. The Electronic Forum has been available since May 2010.

International Classification for Industrial Designs

"The Locarno Classification (LOC) is an international classification used for the purposes of the registration of industrial designs. It was set up by an agreement concluded at a diplomatic conference held in Locarno in 1968: the Locarno Agreement Establishing an International Classification for Industrial Designs. The Locarno Classification comprises a list of classes and subclasses with explanatory notes and an alphabetical list of goods in which industrial designs are incorporated, with an indication of the classes and subclasses into which they fall."

Human Rights Information and Documentation Systems Micro-Thesauri

"A collection of 48 lists with terminology. The Micro-thesauri are intended for use in conjunction with HURIDOCS Standard Formats manuals, and in particular with the HURIDOCS Events Standard Formats: a tool for documenting human rights violations. The Micro-thesauri can be used as a starting point for developing one’s own index terms for libraries and documentation centres, as keywords for organising information on websites, or as controlled vocabularies for databases to record violations."

International Thesaurus of Refugee Terminology

"The Thesaurus grew out of the Draft Thesaurus of Refugee Terminology compiled in English for the UNHCR by Piers Campbell in 1986. In 1988, the then chief of the UNHCR Centre for Documentation on Refugees (CDR), Hans Thoolen, invited Jean Aitchison, a respected expert in the field of thesauri, to provide the technical expertise for the revision and restructuring of this draft.

International Social Security Association Social Security Thesaurus

"The ISSA provides access to information, expert advice, business standards, practical guidelines and platforms for members to build and promote dynamic social security systems worldwide. The vision of dynamic social security provides a framework for the ISSA's action. Dynamic social security refers to social security systems that are accessible, sustainable, adequate, socially inclusive and economically productive, and that are based on performing, well-governed, proactive and innovative social security institutions.

International Labour Organization Taxonomy

"The ILO Taxonomy was designed by the ILO Library as a tool for retrieving information from the ILO website. Its structure therefore closely reflects the work programme of the ILO and is used by ILO departments and Field Offices for describing the content of their web pages and for searching the ILO web site. It is also well suited for use as a subject classification system for arranging collections in small libraries or labour information centres. The main difference between the ILO Taxonomy and the ILO Thesaurus is its purpose.

International Labour Organization Thesaurus

"The ILO Thesaurus is a compilation of more than 4000 terms relating to the world of work. The ILO Thesaurus contains terms on a wide variety of topics related to economic and social development. Areas of major interest to the ILO are treated in detail. These include labour and employment policy, labour standards, labour administration, labour relations, vocational training, social protection, working conditions, wages, occupational safety and health, small enterprise, the informal economy and human rights in the workplace.
