Uniclass is a new classification scheme for the construction industry. It is intended for organising library materials and for structuring product literature and project information. It incorporates both CAWS (Common Arrangement of Work Sections for building works) and EPIC (Electronic Product Information Co-operation), a new system for structuring product data and product literature.

The purpose of the Common Arrangement of Work Sections (CAWS) is to define an efficient and generally acceptable arrangement for specifications and bills of quantities for building projects. It consists of a set of detailed work section definitions, all within a classification framework of Groups and Sub-groups. The CAWS classification down to the level of work section titles forms one of the fifteen tables of the Uniclass classification scheme.
