(5) classification and declassification guides.

(4) declassification instructions, which shall indicate one of the following:

(A) original classification authorities;

(c) Agencies shall establish procedures to ensure that classification guides are reviewed and updated as provided in directives issued under this order.

(2) the originator's current successor in function, if that individual has original classification authority;

(d) All original classification authorities must receive training in proper classification (including the avoidance of over-classification) and declassification as provided in this order and its implementing directives at least once a calendar year. Such training must include instruction on the proper safeguarding of classified information and on the sanctions in section 5.5 of this order that may be brought against an individual who fails to classify information properly or protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure. Original classification authorities who do not receive such mandatory training at least once within a calendar year shall have their classification authority suspended by the agency head or the senior agency official designated under section 5.4(d) of this order until such training has taken place. A waiver may be granted by the agency head, the deputy agency head, or the senior agency official if an individual is unable to receive such training due to unavoidable circumstances. Whenever a waiver is granted, the individual shall receive such training as soon as practicable.

Sec. 1.3. Classification Authority.  (a) The authority to classify information originally may be exercised only by:

This includes providing a format for reporting causes of death on the death certificate. The reported conditions are then translated into medical codes through use of the classification structure and the selection and modification rules contained in the applicable revision of the ICD, published by the World Health Organization. These coding rules improve the usefulness of mortality statistics by giving preference to certain categories, by consolidating conditions, and by systematically selecting a single cause of death from a reported sequence of conditions. The single selected cause for tabulation is called the underlying cause of death, and the other reported causes are the nonunderlying causes of death. The combination of underlying and nonunderlying causes is the multiple causes of death.

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is the classification used to code and classify mortality data from death certificates.


The wetland classification codes are a series of letter and number codes that have been developed to adapt the national wetland classification system to map form. These alpha-numeric codes correspond to the classification nomenclature that best describes the habitat. (for example, PFO1A)
Over the past few years there has been an increasing trend to change from previous classification systems used to the ISO classification systems in ISO 14644-1. However, many companies have continued to use the traditional Class 100, 10,000, 100,000 room classification system from Federal Standard 209-e. In Europe, the GMPs as stated in Annex 1 utilize another system—Grades A through D.Listed below are the letters and titles of the main classes of the Library of CongressClassification. Click on any class to view an outline of its subclasses. The complete text ofthe classification schedules in printed volumes may be purchased from the . Online access to the complete text of the schedules is available in Classification Web, a subscription product that may also be purchased from the Cataloging Distribution Service.If you already know the appropriate panel you can go directly to the CFR and find the classification for your device by reading through the list of classified devices, or if you're not sure, you can use the keyword directory in the . In most cases this database will identify the classification regulation in the CFR. You can also check the below for information on various products and how they are regulated by CDRH.To find the classification of your device, as well as whether any exemptions may exist, you need to find the regulation number that is the classification regulation for your device. There are two methods for accomplishing this: go directly to the and search for a part of the device name, or, if you know the (medical specialty) to which your device belongs, go directly to the listing for that panel and identify your device and the corresponding regulation. You may make a choice now, or continue to read the background information below. If you continue to read, you will have another chance to go to these destinations.Once you have identified the correct classification regulation go to below and click on the correct classification regulation or go to the . Some Class I devices are exempt from the premarket notification and/or parts of the good manufacturing practices regulations. Approximately 572 or 74% of the Class I devices are exempt from the premarket notification process. These exemptions are listed in the classification regulations of 21 CFR and also has been collected together in the document.Each classification panel in the CFR begins with a list of devices classified in that panel. Each classified device has a 7-digit number associated with it, e.g., - Clinical Mercury Thermometer. Once you find your device in the panel's beginning list, go to the section indicated: in this example, . It describes the device and says it is Class II. Similarly, in the Classification Database under "thermometer", you'll see several entries for various types of thermometers. The three letter product code, FLK in the database for Clinical Mercury Thermometer, is also the classification number which is used on the Medical Device Listing form.6. “Manufacturing and storage facilities, processes and environmental classifications should be designed to prevent the extraneous contamination of products. Prevention of contamination is more appropriate than detection and removal, although contamination is likely to become evident during processes such as fermentation and cell culture. Where processes are not closed and there is therefore exposure of the product to the immediate room environment (e.g., during additions of supplements, media, buffers, gases, manipulations during the manufacture of ATMPs) control measures should be put in place, including engineering and environmental controls on the basis of QRM principles. These QRM principles should take into account the principles and guidance from the appropriate sections of Annex 1 to EudraLex, Volume 4, when selecting environmental classification cascades and associated controls.
