United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC)

The United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) is an open and international classification of products and services. It is composed of a five-level hierarchical classification code set, and is owned by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and managed by a third-party GS1 US.

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is implementing UNSPSC for procurement items.
