What is NATO Codification?
NATO Codification System is the global language of logistics. It is the largest cataloguing system in the world which enables NATO countries to exchange logistics information on over 16 million items of supply, ensuring all items of equipment can be fully identified, managed and supported when units deploy.
For an item of equipment to enter the UK’s Military Supply chain it must be codified.
An NSN (NATO Stock Number) is broken down into 3 parts:
1005 – 13 – 123 – 4567
1005 NATO Supply Classification Code (NCS)
13 Country assigning the NSN (NCB code)
123-4567 Non-significant number which, with NCB Code, uniquely identifies the item
