Default Colour codes on steel

I was following a steel delivery lorry this morning and the ends of the steel lengths were painted different colours - yellow,red,blue, white.
What is this for ? The length, different section, grade ?? Any ideas ???

t's the grade/type ie stainless, mild en24t en8 trouble is different suppliers use their own codes so blue for example can mean different things depending on who you buy it from
