They incorporate instructions and guidelines on how to classify estimates generated by application of that Aligned System using the UNFC-2009 Numerical Codes. The relevant Bridging Document shall be identified when reporting estimates using the UNFC-2009 Numerical Codes. RF2013 is independent from UNFC-2009 and is mandatory for reporting to the Russian Federation Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
