The North American Product Classification System (NAPCS) is a joint multi-phase initiative to develop a comprehensive demand-oriented product classification developed by the statistical agencies of Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
Work to date has focused on the products produced by service industries in 12 NAICS sectors 48-49 through 81. With that work provisionally complete, this web page provides an overview of and progress report on the NAPCS initiative and presents the final versions of the product lists developed so far for the service industries included in those 12 sectors.
Work is underway developing NAPCS products of industries in NAICS sectors not yet covered (Sector 11: Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Hunting, Sector 21: Mining, Sector 22: Utilities, Sector 23: Construction, Sector 31-33: Manufacturing, Sector 42: Wholesale Trade, and Sector 44-45: Retail Trade). Provisional lists will be announced on this site as they are decided.
