Nomenclature of materials and supplies
The nomenclature of materials and supplies used in statistics on commodities was compiled on the basis of the statistical classification of products by activity (CPA) of the European Communities, adapting it to national needs. The first four digits describe a producing economic activity (nomenclature TOL2008, TOL2002 or TOL95 depending on the reference year). The length of the codes varies between six to eight digits.
