Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / Tender for government contract
Flemish term or phrase: inducatief
The following national standards apply to the contract
Volgende nationale normen:
De volgende normen en technische specificaties voor zover hun bepalingen niet strijdig zijn met deze van de wet van 24 december 1993, K.B. van 08 januari 1996 en het K.B. van 26 september 1996: de gehomologeerde “Belgische Normen” worden door de het bestek of elk ander contractueel document toepasselijk gemaakt, eventueel door eenvoudig te verwijzen naar het inducatief (N.B.N.: normen van het Belgisch Instituut voor Normalisatie).

Any thoughts very welcome. Many thanks.

Explanation:
i.e. the identification number 'NBN xxxx', as opposed to the title

Possibly, presuming it should be 'indicatief' and based on an assumed borrowing from French (always likely in more or less formal Belgian Dutch).

From my simple French/English dictionary, 'indicatief' as a noun means (among other things) the call sign (indicatief d'appel) of a radio station or the dialing code (of a telephone number).

Well, make that 'always possible' (but a French dictionary is always handy with Belgian texts)
