PROPOSED CHANGES TO STATISTICAL CODES IN THE AUSTRALIAN HARMONIZED EXPORT COMMODITY CLASSIFICATION (AHECC) 2012
The Information paper: Proposed changes to statistical codes in the AHECC, 2012 (cat. no. 5368.0.55.015) will be released on the ABS website on 24 March 2011. This information paper presents the proposed Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC) statistical structure for use from 1 January 2012. Changes to the AHECC result from the introduction of the five yearly review conducted by the World Customs Organisation and the ABS review of statistical codes. This paper enables users of detailed merchandise trade export statistics to review and comment on proposed changes to export statistical codes.
A similar consultation process is planned for the Imports Customs Tariff statistical codes with an information paper to be released on 13 May 2011.
