Categories Reference

These categories are from the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC). The UNSPSC provides an open standard for efficient, accurate classification of products and services across many industries. The Uniform Code Council (UCC) has been selected by the United Nations Development Program to serve as code manager for the UNSPSC. The UCC is a leading standards development organisation and one of the foremost advocates of efficient business across industries. The categories you are selecting from have many underlying sub-categories. Click on the category name below to display the sub-categories, which may help you to make the right selection. The sub-categories can be broken down further, however to view this level of detail you will need to download the latest version of the code from the UNSPSC web site at http://www.unspsc.org.
