Part „Also include” contains a list of borderline cases, which belong to the described category. Cases, which do not obviously fit into one category, are in a part „Excludes”. Excluded cases may contain a reference to the classification items to which the excluded cases belong. Part „General description” serves for the items of the higher levels, its content relates to all the items standing on the lower levels of hierarchy.
Explanatory notes are usually worked up for the items of the lowest classification level. However they may exist on the highest levels, especially if it is a general description.
A correspondence table expresses the relationship between different versions or variants of the same classification or between versions or variants of different classifications. In the first case the correspondence table links two versions or variants of a classification to facilitate comparability over time. In the second instance it expresses the relationship between different classifications. Correspondences are bi-directional.
