This publication is what is colloquially known as the "Three-Part Format." It is CSI/CSC's recommended organization of information within an individual specification section. The consistency introduced by following SectionFormat promotes readability, reduces omissions by the writer, and helps readers (i.e. bidders) avoid overlooking essential requirements.

SpecLink-E's construction specifications follow SectionFormat.
