CLASS is a state-of-the-art GILDAS1 software for reduction and analysis of (sub)-millimeter spectroscopic data. Up to now, the CLASS data format could only describe a predetermined number of parameters in the observation headers, these parameters being grouped in 17 sections (e.g. the general, spectroscopic or calibration sections). However, the possibility to add telescope-specific information to the CLASS data format was requested several time. Instead of introducing a per-telescope specific and fixed section, we thus decided to introduce a new flexible section, named User Section. This document describes the functionalities available to the end-users as well as the implementation steps which must be developed by the section owner.
