ECLASS 10.0.1

ECLASS 10.0.1

You purchase a license for ECLASS 10.0.1 in all available languages and all export formats: BASIC (csv and XML) and ADVANCED (XML). ECLASS 10.0.1 has been published on 2017-02-03.

ECLASS release 10.0 has been complemented by a Service Pack. Service Pack 10.0.1 completely replaces ECLASS release 10.0.


Update 2019-07-05: The Advanced XML had to be re-exported due to an incorrect entry in the XML dictionaries in the tag <revision>. Some ECLASS users use the tag <revision> to identify if an ECLASS version is newer or equal than existing loaded schema.

IMPORTANT: No changes were done on the ECLASS content.

<revision> entry of the exchanged file v01: 1
<revision> entry of the re-exported file v02: 10.0.1


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

The release ECLASS 10.0.1 is an enhancement and modification of Release 9.1. With Release 7.0 an improved structure according to the underlying ISO13584 data model and an ISO-standard XML format (OntoML) was introduced.

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 10.0.1 comprises in comparison to Release 9.1:

  • 6 new segments
    • Segment 45: Human and veterinary drug, pesticide as well as active ingredient
    • Segment 46: Clothing and textile
    • Segment 47: Body care and personal hygiene
    • Segment 48: Sport, playing, leisure
    • Segment 49: Public safety and military technology
    • Segment 50: Interior furnishing
  • ca. 2,000 new classes
  • ca. 1,300 new properties
  • ca. 100 new property blocks
  • ca. 200 new keywords
  • ca. 1,600 new values
  • more than 76,000 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:

  • "Power Plant Technology", segments 23, 27, 33, 36: Harmonization between VGB material classes and segments in ECLASS 10.0.1
  • Harmonization ECLASS – PI, segment 29: partial harmonization-activities between the PI-Standard and ECLASS concerning household appliances
  • PROLIST Integration, segments 27, 36, 37: Finalization of PROLIST 3.2 Integration in ECLASS 9.0
  • ETIM Mapping, segment 27: first harmonization-activities between ETIM and ECLASS and finalization of the mapping
  • Harmonization between ECLASS and proficl@ss, segment 21: Expansion of the class structure in ECLASS
  • ECLASS-wide correction of 9x classes
  • Commercial properties: Harmonization of commercial properties in ECLASS BASIC and ADVANCED

 Content ECLASS 10.0.1 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

Content ECLASS 10.0.1 BASIC (XML) or ADVANCED (XML):

  • 39 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: In this release, the "Templates" folder already known from previous releases does not contain any content. The reason for this is the future handling with templates to deliver and publish only "default" templates with substantial content. This may change for future releases.
    Templates contain a Data Requirement Statement for the data exchange, in which can be defined e.g. sequences or optional and mandatory fields between the data transmitter and the receiver. 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
