What is a UNSPSC code? Where do I find them?

The United Nations Standard Product & Services Codes (UNSPSC) are detailed codes, required for NZ Healthcare Data Recipients

You can browse through the v15 UNSPSC list to find your code, used for DHB NC

Alternatively you can use the DHB National Catalogue short list of UNSPSC codes located here.

Southern Cross Hospitals have requested that v19 UNSPSC be used, the full Commodity List is attached.

For v19, a short list has been created and this is restricted to Lab, Medical and Pharmaceutical codes only - i.e. 41000000 range, 42000000 range and 51000000 range

All NZ Heathcare Data Recipients have requested the Commodity (lowest) level of the codes be entered in the NPC.
