33. This Framework attempts to provide linkages between the standards adopted for the various components of tourism statistics and relevant broader Australian and international standards, where these exist. While the PRODUCT classification is custom designed for tourism purposes it is desirable to have a linkage between this classification and an Australian and international standard commodity classifications. This would enable commodity data collected in tourism statistics collections to be linked and compared with commodity data from other statistical collections which use the Australian, international, or a related, standard. To provide such a linkage, a concordance between the PRODUCT classification and the standard international classification of goods and services, the Central Product Classification (CPC), has been developed and is provided in Appendix 1. Because the nature and focus of the two classifications are different, the relationships between the respective categories are not precise. Additionally, the PRODUCT classification comprises some non-commercial commodities which are not covered in the CPC.
