Responsibility codes (RC) are used to categorise items into groupings or into various 'Responsibilities'. These are used in various places around the system, e.g. FourD, or data export. They can be used for other reasons specific to your project requirement.

There are 10 predefined codes RC1-10 and these can be renamed as required.

Responsibility codes are further sub divided into Responsibility Packages (RP). Again, these are used for various reasons within BIMXtra or as your project requires.
