The UDC was developed in 1895 by Paul Otlet and Henri Fontaine taking the DDC as its base. Their efforts resulted in the publication of a scheme called Manuel du Repertoire Universel Bibliographique, an almost-faceted scheme which involved adopting the almost-enumerative classification into one which allows synthesis.

It is a bibliographic classification available in three versions:

Full edition 2,2 1,000 terms
Medium edition. 70,000 (30% of the full edition)
Abridged edition 20,000 (10% of the full edition)

English edition is published by the British Standards Institution as BS:1000.

Now, the UDC is owned’, by a consortium (having members from England, Spain, Belgium, Japan, France and the FID itself). It is constantly revised and revisions are announced in its annual bulletin : Extensions and Corrections to UDC. At present, the UDC is being restructured to a fully faceted system.
