ad hoc Committee on
Chemical Identity and Nomenclature Systems
link to Division VIII
Chairman: Dr. Alan D McNaught
> List of Members
The CCINS is the coordinating committee responsible for
- developing systems for conventional and computer-based chemical
- cooperating with the four current nomenclature Commissions;
- coordinating interdisciplinary activities in the nomenclature field;
- recommending to the Bureau long-range strategy on chemical nomenclature.
It is expected that this body will provide the long-term central planning,
management and coordination of chemical nomenclature that would otherwise
be lost when the Commissions are discontinued at the end of 2001. CCINS
has been established based on recommendations formulated by the Strategy
