Medical Definition of International code of zoological nomenclature
An Authoritative document containing a system of rules and recommendations to be followed in giving a scientific name to an animal or animal group.

The most recent version of the Code, adopted in principle by the 20th General Assembly of the International Union of Biological Sciences at Helsinki in 1979, was approved by the ICZN late in 1983.
