There are several industry classification schemes: the EU has NACE Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community - Wikipedia and the UN has ISIC International Standard Industrial Classification - Wikipedia and there’s GICS for investment/ESG purposes Global Industry Classification Standard - Wikipedia and the insurance industry has several including Commercial General Liability codes - and there are mappings between them.
I’m planning to propose an approach that will provide support for the different schemes, treated as hierarchies, with mappings between them, and integration with the Industry entities we also have.
