Electronics manufacturers are required to register devices with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (Q1057600) prior to the devices being sold in Canada. Upon registration, the applicant provides a Hardware Version Identification Number (Q66823522) identifying the hardware model of the device. Note this identifier could be different from other hardware model numbers used by the manufacturer. This property proposal captures the number which is recognised by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (Q1057600). Pixeldomain (talk) 03:37, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

  •   Question @Pixeldomain: if these identify specific models, why isn't this an external identifier? --DannyS712 (talk) 08:46, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment @DannyS712: The string is not unique as it is vendor defined, and therefore different vendors could arrive at the same value. Pixeldomain (talk) 06:24, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
