Astronomical data collections are widely using tabular formats to expose their data to the community and especially in the Virtual Observatory. In order to label the content of physical quantities stored in table columns , The Unified Content Descriptors (UCDs)\cite{2011arXiv1110.0518P} labels have been standardized and attached as semantic tags to a wide range of measurements and metadata. This unifies the content description accross multiple data collections and archive centers. The Planetary and Solar science communities proposed , together with the IVOA Semantics Working group, to extend this bank of semantic labels for their own collections distribution and to adopt compatible standards such as VOTable, TAP, etc. This work shows the new UCD set proposed and how it is made available in the Virtual Observatory framework. A reference vocabulary is set up, UCD labels assigning tools and tests are presented.
