UNSPSC Implementation

The international classification system for procurement items called the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) will start to replace the Government of Canada’s Goods and Services Identification Numbers (GSIN) codes in 2021.

The Government of Canada will start to use the UNSPSC codes to identify goods and services for procurement activities. Over the course of the transition from GSIN to UNSPSC, the information on, including Tenders, Standing Offers and Supply Arrangements, and Contract History, will eventually be connected and inter-linked using UNSPSC.
