Level Code Display Definition
1 INSTANCE specific Description:A determiner that specifies that the Entity object represents a particular physical thing (as opposed to a universal, kind, or class of physical thing).
Discussion: It does not matter whether an INSTANCE still exists as a whole at the point in time (or process) when we mention it, for example, a drug product lot is an INSTANCE even though it has been portioned out for retail purpose.
2   GROUP specific group A determiner that specifies that the Entity object represents a particular collection of physical things (as opposed to a universal, kind, or class of physical thing). While the collection may resolve to having only a single individual (or even no individuals), the potential should exist for it to cover multiple individuals.
1 KIND described Description:A determiner that specifies that the Entity object represents a universal, kind or class of physical thing (as opposed to a particular thing).
2   GROUPKIND described group A determiner that specifies that the Entity object represents a universal, kind or class of collections physical things. While the collection may resolve to having only a single individual (or even no individuals), the potential should exist for it to cover multiple individuals.
2   QUANTIFIED_KIND Deprecated described quantified The described quantified determiner indicates that the given Entity is taken as a general description of a specific amount of a thing. For example, QUANTIFIED_KIND of syringe (quantity = 3,) stands for exactly three syringes.
