Commodity coding is the assignment of codes to item records (at the part number level). e.g. CPV, UNSPSC
A code describing a commodity or a group of commodities pertaining to goods classification. This code can be carrier tariff or regulating in nature.
An alphanumeric classification code for an acquired item. The commodity code selected drives the object code and description field in Purchasing documents. It also drives the description field in CAMS documents. Equipment commodities begin with an alpha character, while supply and theft-sensitive commodities begin with a numeric character. Equipment Management staff maintain the Commodity Code table.
