You purchase a license for ECLASS 9.0 in all available languages and all export formats: BASIC (csv and XML) and ADVANCED (XML). ECLASS 9.0 has been published on 2014-12-08.

Most of the language versions are partly translated;  the rest filled with the English original.

The release ECLASS 9.0 is an enhancement and modification of Release 8.1. With Release 7.0 an improved structure according to the underlying ISO13584 data model and an ISO-standard XML format (OntoML) was introduced.

Exclusively for the medical industry a "patched" Release 9.0 was created, containing the adjustments in Segment 34 ("Medicine, medical technology"). After the acquisition of Release 9.0, the "patched" Release 9.0 is available in your download area, too.

Starting with ECLASS Release 7.0, there are two different versions of ECLASS which contain the same classes, but differ in the product description on the basis of properties and values:

  • BASIC (in .csv or .XML format). The BASIC version contains only the content that could be represented in a .csv format that was the exclusively used export format before 7.0. Therefore, it does not contain property block structures nor dynamic elements as in the ADVANCED version. BASIC does contain all classes of the ADVANCED, but the product description with the help of properties and values is structured a lot easier. BASIC is therefore a subset of ADVANCED.
  • ADVANCED (only in .XML format). The ADVANCED version is the leading version in the database and built on the basis of the data model ISO13584. It contains all structural elements of the ECLASS classification system including property blocks, dynamic elements such as reference properties, polymorphism and cardinality blocks. The description of these extended structural components as well as additional meaningful information can be found here:
    Each classification class refers to both an ADVANCED and a BASIC application class that contains the product description with the help of properties and values. The ADVANCED version contains the complete content of ECLASS and is therefore an extension of the BASIC version.
    Under you may find an overview (matrix of functionalities) which makes it possible for you to compare the two versions (BASIC and ADVANCED) and their possibilities. A reference table between the BASIC and ADVANCED versions enables users of the BASIC version to exchange technical data with users of the ADVANCED version, whereby the necessary know-how has to be delivered by the user of the ADVANCED version.

ECLASS 9.0 comprises in comparison to Release 8.1:

  • 3 new Segments
    • Segment 13: Development (Service)
    • Segment 43: Optics
    • Segment 44: Motor Vehicle
  • ca. 2,700 new classes
  • ca. 2,000 new properties
  • ca. 280 new property blocks
  • ca. 600 new keywords
  • ca. 2,500 new values
  • more than 5,500 new class-property-relations

All available downloads at the ECLASS DownloadPortal generally contain a complete ECLASS version in csv format or XML format (for initial implementation). For information on the data structure, please refer to the enclosed README file.

These changes of the content are based on the following measures:

  • Re-structuring of 90/91/92-classes into classification classed according to the new concept.
  • Integration and harmonization of PROLIST 3.2 (the PROLIST e.V. joins ECLASS e.V.)
  • New content and re-structuring especially in segments 24, 25, 27, 29, 34 und 40
  • Extensions in segment 27 to supply a mapping between ECLASS 9.0 and ETIM 6.0
  • Description of classes in segment 29 for small and large household appliances
  • Definitions of classes and properties in segment 24 and 27 completed
  • Expansion of property "basic color" in correlation with "color code" and "color code system"
  • Correction of the properties concerning the topics REACH, RoHS, Battery designation and WEEE (removal of the properties from the basic sets of properties lists and assignment to only relevant classes)
  • Correction of class duplicates

 Content ECLASS 9.0 BASIC (csv):

  • Classes file (complete)
  • Properties file (complete)
  • Keywords and Synonyms file
  • Values file (complete)
  • Unit file (complete)
  • Class-Property relations file
  • Value lists (restricted Property-Value relations file, only BOOLEAN properties)
  • Proposal lists (suggested Class-Property-Value relations file incl. constraints)
  • README file ECLASS standard
  • Reference matrix ECLASS-CPV-GPC-UNSPSC
  • README file reference matrix


  • 33 XML files: for each segment one XML file that contains the complete content of the relevant segment (Classes, Keywords, Properties, Synonyms, Values, Value Lists, Units and all relations) (complete)
  • Templates: additionally to the 33 XML files that contain the content of a segment one XML file per segment is added that describes the templates. Templates implement a data requirement statement for the data exchange so that a data sender and a receiver can define e.g. orders, mandatory and optional fields etc. More information in the ECLASS Wiki:
  • ECLASS units ("UnitsML" in XML format)
  • Only ADVANCED: Additionally for the ADVANCED user the mapping file BASIC - ADVANCED is included
  • README file
