Description / Abstract:

Purpose and Scope

This standard describes how to create a unique numeric identifier for each address of each organization, in or served by the publishing industry, that is engaged in repetitive transactions with other members of this group in order to facilitate communications among them.

It is intended that these numeric identifiers will be assigned to and used by U.S. book and journal publishers, booksellers, book wholesalers, subscription agents, jobbers and distributors, printers, binders, compositors and other manufacturing suppliers to the publishing· industry, college and university bookstores, libraries, library systems, elementary and secondary schools and school systems. It is not expected that this numeric identifier will be assigned to or used by organizations whose transactions with members of this group are infrequent, although they are not necessarily excluded.
