ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI)/Construction Specifications Canada MasterFormat™ Expansion Task Team (MFETT) recently released the third draft of a revised MasterFormat document. The team also called on interested parties to take advantage of the opportunity to provide comments on the latest version.

Draft Three features a new numbering system that expands the capacity of the current MasterFormat. It replaces the 16-division format with nine “Groupings,” each capable of holding up to 10 divisions. Section numbers now include six digits rather than five, providing a theoretical maximum of 10,000 sections per division at level three.

The third draft of the MasterFormat can be viewed by going to www.csinet.org/technic/mfrevision.htm.
