eCl@ss is a hierarchical system for grouping materials, products and services according to a logical structure with a level detail

that corresponds to the product-specific properties that can be described using norm-conforming properties.

Products and services can be allocated to the four-stage, numeric eCl@ss class structure.


Search terms and synonyms permit targeted sourcing of products and services within the classification.

Property bars with standardized properties and value tables enable accurate description and subsequent identification of products and services.

eCl@ss is offered for downloading in several languages by logging on to http://www.eclassdownload.com
