Classification Management Tool (CMT)

CMT stands for Classification Management Tool, our custom-built online software tool to access the international multilingual ETIM master database and efficiently organize and process additions and requests for change (RFCs) to the ETIM model. Most parts of the ETIM CMT are open to the public: only some parts and functions of the tool are subject to login. By all means, have a look around!

CMT is also the communication medium for status updates on RFCs to the requester and other interested members. As a member with login, you can use a Favourites Filter to select the classes you want to be informed about. You will then receive a weekly summary status update of relevant RFCs to prevent mailbox overflow. These updates contain direct links to these pending change requests in the ETIM CMT, to find out more or join relevant discussions.

Modelling Management Tool  (MMT)

MMT stands for Modelling Management Tool, our custom-built online platform for ETIM Modelling Classes (ETIM MC). Here you can access the international multilingual ETIM MC master database where we manage and process change requests (RFCs) to the ETIM MC model. MMT is the communication medium for status updates on RFCs to the requester and other interested members. MMT requires login credentials that can be obtained at our country member organisations. For consulting the ETIM MC model we refer to the ETIM Viewer, or the ETIM API.

Modelling Classes have a different versioning system from regular ETIM classes (EC) and there is also a possibility to upload/download parametric reference drawings. Because of the high volume of repetition, all dimensions regarding different types of connections are isolated into Connection Type Classes. As MMT is relatively new, it is updated regularly with new features. Weekly push updates and favourite classes selections are examples of features on the development roadmap.


In addition to our downloadable file containing the complete ETIM model structure, ETIM also offers webservices for direct access to the model via the ETIM API (Application Programming Interface). ETIM API is continuously updated and started with a few base services: ‘Release’ for a list of all classes within a specific ETIM release and ‘Details’ to retrieve all class information. Today, we also offer API end-points for the ETIM MC model.

The ETIM API services are developed in Swagger, an open source software framework that helps developers to design, build and document REST webservices. Visit the ETIM API dedicated webpage to use and help test its services and download the documentation you need.

ETIM BMEcat certification tool

ETIM offers an online tool that validates your XML-files against the ETIM BMEcat Guideline and the ETIM classification. Once your file is successfully validated as error free, you can download a certification document. The online ETIM BMEcat certification tool is free of charge but exclusively available to ETIM members. For more information or login credentials, please contact your local ETIM office.

ETIM Viewer

Our classification management tools ETIM CMT and ETIM MMT can be used as a viewer, of course, but are primarily designed for optimal management of the model. For your convenience, we developed the ETIM Viewer, a straightforward website optimized as viewer. Originally an app, it is now a responsive website optimized for mobile use. Just open the website from your smartphone and add it to your start screen. For now, we have opted to release the ETIM viewer as a simple viewer. However, the tool can very easily (and may very well) be extended with new smart features in the future.

View, download, manage, validate: with the ETIM toolset you can do it all. Anytime, anywhere.
