The United Nations Framework Classification for Fossil Energy and Mineral Reserves and Resources 2009 (UNFC-2009) is a universally applicable scheme for classifying/evaluating energy and mineral reserves and resources — it is the successor to UNFC-2004. Designed as an all-encompassing framework, it enables the incorporation and unification of existing national systems, while allowing their classification units and glossary to be retained. The principal objective of UNFC-2009 is to enhance international communication by providing a simple, user-friendly and uniform format for the reporting of energy reserves and resources, using market-based economic criteria.

Foreword

Establishing a complete picture of the current and future supply base of fossil energy and minerals is necessary for effective resources management. Accurate and consistent estimates of fossil energy and mineral reserves and resources, coherent with other scientific and social/ economic information, are the foundation for such assessments. A number of different standards have evolved over time in response to local requirements, but we are now called to serve the needs that arise in a globalized economy. As a result, there has been growing interest in re-expressing earlier work in the form of common and universally applicable standards.
