CHANGES IN THIS AND FORTHCOMING ISSUES


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Statistics presents on the OECD country group

New members of the OECD, Israel and Estonia, have been included in the OECD country group. This impacts the OECD data in table 14 of this publication and time series spreadsheet tables 14a, 14b, 36a to 36j and 37a to 37h. These countries have been included in the OECD country group for the complete merchandise trade time series (ie. data from January 1988).


Revision to gold and silver merchandise trade data outside the normal revision period

The Customs Tariff codes allocated to some gold and silver imports have been revised on a merchandise trade basis in the months January 2010 and March 2010. These months are outside the normal revision period for merchandise trade data. The changes will not impact on the balance of payments series of the broader level merchandise trade statistics presented in this publication. The changes will impact on detailed merchandise trade import statistics at the 5-digit Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) and Harmonised Tariff Item Statistical Classification (HTISC) levels available via ABS Client Services.


CHANGES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES

Changes to Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification and Customs Tariff classification

Statistical codes in the Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification and the Customs Tariff classification were revised with new codes coming into effect on 1 January 2011. The changes result from the introduction of new statistical codes separately identifying essential oils in Chapter 33, and for identifying substances controlled by the Montreal and Stockholm Conventions in Chapters 29 and 38. The changes will not impact directly on the presentation of statistics in this publication but will impact on detailed merchandise trade import and export statistics available via ABS Client Services.
