Product & Services Tags Overview

  • Product & Service Tags indicate the products and services a company can offer on the DeepStream Network.

  • These tags can be updated on a company's profile page or used within requests and play a crucial role in helping buyers find suitable suppliers.

  • DeepStream utilises the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) codes to categorise Product & Services Tags, providing a standardised structure.

Understanding UNSPSC Codes

  • UNSPSC codes consist of a 4-level structure, including "parent" tags and "child" tags.

  • Each tag has a description and an 8-digit code, with each 2 digits representing a level of the structure.

The table below explains how this works:

Level / Type





Structures and Building and Construction and Manufacturing Components and Supplies



Concrete and cement and plaster



Cement and lime
