  • a Based on the ccr and mec complex type only. SCCmec entries with mec complex class followed by ccr complex type are shown when a SCCmec type was not attributable because ccr and/or the mec complex class were nontypeable or when a not-yet-described association between ccr and the mec complex was found.
