NATO codification symposium slated.

The 10th International Symposium on NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Codification will be held 10 to 13 October in Edinburgh, Scotland. The theme of this year's symposium is "Codification: The DNA of Modern Logistics."

The NATO Codification System (NCS) provides a common logistics language that makes it easier for allies to share equipment and materials. The symposium is held every few years to review current and future requirements for the NCS and advance NCS as the world's standard language of Government supply chain logistics.

Based on the U.S. cataloging system, the NCS is used by more than 50 countries, and it is becoming a standard for e-commerce. NCS supporters seek to use the NCS as a common language between Government and industry in order to build synergy in the logistics chain from the factory to the foxhole.

Information on the symposium and on-line registration are available on the Internet at
