ECLASS defines a standard for product classification and product description. ECLASS users therefore have the typical use case to exchange data based on releases of the ECLASS standard in data exchange formats such as BMEcat, GS1 CIN or ISO 29002-10 technical catalog. Since embedding data in a data exchange format usually leaves unclarities or multiple options, ECLASS is handing out guidelines on how to embed payloads based on the ECLASS standard into particular file formats.
In this Technical Specification the embedding and usage of ECLASS based content in the context of ISO 29002-10 technical catalogs is described as a guideline to implementers. This document uses as its schema reference the amended version of ISO 29002-10 catalog that is incorporated in ECLASS XML 3.0 or higher.
