Introduction to MasterFormatTM Cataloguing System
MasterFormatTM is a master list of numbers and titles for organising information about construction requirements, products and activities into a standard sequence. It is jointly produced by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada (CSC).
MasterFormat is a uniform system for organising information in project manuals, for organising cost data, for filing product information and other technical data, for identifying drawing objects, and for presenting construction market data.
Over the past 30 years, the system of numbers and titles at the heart of MasterFormat has been used increasingly by the construction industry. The 16-division format addresses the plethora of inconsistent arrangements and titles for specification sections.
Today, MasterFormat is the only system of organising construction specifications in widespread use in the United States and Canada.
MasterFormat arranges related construction products and activities into 16 level one titles, called Divisions. The level two titles identify clusters of products and activities having an identifying characteristic in common. The numbers and titles of the Divisions and level two titles are as follows:
