Sectors in ETIM
ETIM International has been started from the electrical sector and all ETIM country organizations support the ETIM classification for electrical products. But ETIM is active in more sectors nowadays, started by the Netherlands but internationally adopted. ETIM for the HVAC and Sanitary sector is now adopted by 8 of the 16 member countries. ETIM for the Building sector was newly developed by the Netherlands but is already also in use in the 3 Nordic countries Finland, Norway and Sweden. The last current sector is Shipbuilding, but this sector is only supported by the Netherlands at the moment.
For sector related content issues special subcommittees of the TC (Technical Committee) are formated to discuss change request and other specific sector discussions.
