These links should give you plenty to review including the final link which is a mapping between classifications

Single classifications
OECD (DAC & CRS): http://www.listpoint.co.uk/CodeList/details/DAC%20CRS%20Sector%20Classifications/2011.1

COFOG : http://www.listpoint.co.uk/CodeList/details/United%20Nations%20COFOG%20Codes%20-%20Functions%20of%20Government/1.0

Classification Context
- group of UK Government and International Classifications

- group of International Codings for Industrial Classifications

Classification Mapping
- direct mapping between competing standards

Subject: [euopendata] Classification of open datasets...


Many countries are developing national portals with metadata about open datasets from the public sector. To make datasets easier to find and to lower the threshold for pan-european (or global) re-use it would be great if classification of datasets followed a shared taxonomy.

There are many candidates that could be used, e.g. Eurovoc [1], NACE [2]. I would be grateful for any pointers if there is work going on to harmonize classification of datasets on a global or European level.
