CPV Codes


CPV (Common Procurement Vocabulary) codes have been developed by the European Union specifically for public procurement. Their main purpose is to help procurement personnel to classify their contract notices consistently and correctly and to help suppliers find the notices which are of interest to them by using a standardised vocabulary.

We have created an online tool for browsing the latest CPV–2007 code hierarchy. Simply enter the description of the products or services you are interested in and view the relevant CPV codes.
