The ECLASS Standard

The importance of ECLASS for the digitalization of the economy

The ECLASS standard plays a significant role in the digitalization and standardization of the economy. As a global, cross-industry product classification standard, ECLASS enables information about products and their properties to be structured and described uniformly. As a result, error-free data exchange between companies, suppliers and customers is facilitated. The use of ECLASS supports the interoperability of systems and the automation of business processes along the entire value chain. This optimizes efficiency, reduces costs and accelerates the introduction of new products to the market. In addition, ECLASS lays the foundation for innovative technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0. With the uniform language provided by ECLASS, companies can better utilize the opportunities of digitalization and strengthen their competitive position. ECLASS is an essential element for the successful integration of companies into the digitalized business world.
