Just a note here. While Kodak identifies film with different combinations of notches, and possibly Fuji and Ilford, the smaller companies do not use (to my knowledge) different notch "codes", rather the same notch, which serves to orient the film in your hand in the dark to emulsion side.

Of historical note: Gevaert sheet films (pre Agfa merger) used two notches to identify Ortho film and three notches to identify Panchromatic film
