8.75 An important aspect of quality is that the concepts, definitions and classifications used should be consistent with those of related statistics. Australia's international merchandise export and import statistics have been compiled in broad agreement with UN guidelines for many years. The relevant international standards are widely used throughout the world, ensuring a broad level of consistency between the trade statistics of participating countries.
