Recommendation No. 20 - Units of Measure used in International Trade

Page 56/57

Annex III (Informative)

Units of Measure: Code elements listed by common code

Note 1. Historically the code elements for units of packaging were specified in this UN/ECE Recommendation. The source of these codes is from UN/ECE Recommendation No. 21 (Codes for types of cargo, packages and packaging materials). Recommendation No. 21 is maintained independently of Recommendation 20. To avoid duplicate maintenance and to better facilitate the use of the latest code elements for units of packaging, the existing code entries in Recommendation 20 for units of packaging have been flagged for deletion. Users should reference UN/ECE Recommendation No. 21 for the applicable code entries to be used as units of measure. Accordingly the following guidelines should be followed. a) The 2 character alphanumeric code values in UN/ECE Recommendation 21 shall be used. To avoid duplication with existing code values in UN/ECE Recommendation No. 20, each code value from UN/ECE Recommendation 21 shall be prefixed with an X, resulting in a 3 alphanumeric code when used as a unit of measure. For example: Rec. 21 Rec. 20 Code: AE Code: XAE Name: Aerosol Name: Aerosol

Description:

A unit of count defining the number of aerosols

b) The description of the UN/ECE Recommendation 21 code entries when used as a unit measure shall be interpreted as have a description of A unit of count defining the number of xxxxxxxxxxs where xxxxxxxxxx is the name of the code value in UN/ECE Recommendation 21, pluralized as appropriate. c) Common code values for UN/ECE Recommendation 20 in the range of X00 to XZZ shall be reserved for assignment as units of packaging derived from the code values specified in UN/ECE Recommendation 21.
