Signposting you to the right ETIM Class for your products

Richard Appleton, Head of Digitalisation at the Electrical Distributors’ Association (EDA) explains why these guides are so helpful for manufacturers,

“Getting started in ETIM means identifying the right ETIM Class for the products  you make. Each ETIM class has a number of ETIM features mapped against it, and if you start out with the wrong ETIM code for your products the chances are that you won’t be able to describe your products accurately or you may miss out some features.

“It’s like setting out on a journey and taking a wrong turn early on. Getting the right ETIM Class for your products is the key to unlocking the features and values that you need to accurately describe your products.

“Plus, it’s not always easy to find your products in the ETIM Classification Management Tool just by searching for a product by name. The ETIM Guides we’ve created offer quick look-up lists which are very easy to use.”

"I think of these ETIM Guides as signposts: once you have chosen the right ETIM Class for your products, the relevant features and values are unlocked. If you choose the wrong ETIM Class to begin with, you won't be able to describe your products accurately."
