This subseries corresponds to section 6 in the VANOC records classification system. Records in this section were given codes in the range 00800-00999. An alternate version of the classification system is sometimes used that expresses the range as 06800 - 06999; some documents in this subseries may use codes in this range. The first two numbers of the code are not significant (e.g, 00935-10 is functionally equivalent to 06935-10).
