This standard defines a color index system used by, but not limited to, Government activities in a format suitable for color identification, color selection, color matching, and quality control inspection. It also describes the designation and use of color media that is available to conduct these activities.

Additionally, the revision provides updated color reference media information as well as replaces tristimulus color values with CIE L*a*b* color values. Forty-two new colors have also been added to the standard.
