Abstract: The suggestions and comments on the UDC 52 revision, which has been carried out by George Wilkins during 1995-1998, are presented: * to assign the subclass ``522. Theoretical Astrophysics'' for general aspects and methodological problems of this science; * to transform the subdivision ``524.8 The Universe. Metagalaxy. Cosmology.'' as a subclass 525. In this subclass should be included theories of cosmology and observational confirmations of cosmological conclusions, relativistic astrophysics and gravitation theory, high-energy and nuclear astrophysics; * to introduce new computer-readable compilations of astronomical data (catalogues, atlases, various inquiry information, numerical and graphical data) into correspondent subdivisions.
