NOTES

  • In this group, the last place priority rule is applied, i.e. at each hierarchical level, in the absence of an indication to the contrary, classification is made in the last appropriate place.
  • In this group, it is desirable to add the appropriate indexing code(s) from each of groups B03D 2201/00 or B03D 2203/00.
