The principal document of the System is the Allied Codification Publication No 1 (ACodP-1), also known as the NATO Manual on Codification, which describes the system operating procedures. In its military application the System has been accepted under two NATO Standardisation Agreements (STANAGs) - STANAG 3150 (Uniform System of Supply Classification) and STANAG 3151 (Uniform System of Item of Supply Identification). The System, which is based upon the United States Federal Catalogue System, is also used by the Civil Departments of some NATO nations. It is governed by the NATO Group of National Directors on Codification (AC/135) and implemented by the National Codification Bureau (NCB) of each user nation.
