I need to understand this.... Stainless Steel 316, SA193, B8M, CL1

I dont understand "SA193" and the "CL1"... I am pretty sure I know what B8M is but would like a more definitive statement before I say I do..

Also, does 18-8 fall into the the 300 series of Stainless?
(edit: I have since read that 18-8 falls into the 300 series of stainless)

Thanks
