RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R&D) CLASSIFICATION FOR NEW ZEALAND USE

Harmonisation between Australia and New Zealand of Division 81 Research and Development Services was not possible because of different user requirements in each country. The NZ structure in this Annex is based on the purpose of the research being undertaken, and takes its detail from the OECD Frascati Manual. The Division 81 structure in the detailed classification is based on the Research Fields Courses and Disciplines (RFCD) classification contained in the Australian Standards Research Classification (ASRC).

81 Research and Development Services - the categories listed (81000.03 81000.66) are not appropriate in NZ, because the two unofficial classifications used in New Zealand focus on purpose of the R&D rather than the scientific discipline that performs the R&D. The following R&D breakdowns sre preferred:
