Swedish term or phrase: Abbreviation: c/c
Measurement for mounting a toilet seat against a wall. The entire source segment is
Infästning I vägg, c/c 180 mm enl. Europastandard.

My first impulse was cubic centimeters but why that for a wall mount? Any plumbers out there?
Could only find c/c for a shower mixer for Håfa, but there was no equivalent translation that I could find.

Explanation:
Guessing. In other contexts, I have seen it used for centre-to-centre, but I don't quite see how it would fit in yours. Hopefully, this will just ring a bell in someone who knows for sure.
