1402.03(f)    Recognition of Industry Terms

Industry terminology should be recognized as sufficient to identify the goods or services when supported by dictionary definitions or other authoritative references. Examples of acceptable terminology are "telecommunications services, namely, personal communications services" and "telecommunications services, namely, ISDN services." If the references or evidence submitted raise any doubt as to the widespread recognition of the terminology, a brief explanation of the product or activity may be included in the identification, but the accepted industry terminology may remain part of the identification as well.
