The United Nation produces the Central Product Classification system (CPC) . THE CPC constitutes a complete product classification covering goods and services. It was intended to serve as an international standard for assembling and tabulating all kinds of data requiring product detail including industrial production, national accounts, service industries, domestic and foreign commodity trade, international trade in services, balance of payments, consumption and price statistics. Other basic aims were to provide a framework for international comparison and promote harmonization of various types of statistics dealing with goods and services.[1] Mars settlements will require all of these products and services, either locally produces or imported.
