CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE


CHANGES TO AUSTRALIAN HARMONIZED EXPORTS COMMODITY CLASSIFICATION (AHECC) AND CUSTOMS TARIFF CLASSIFICATION

Statistical codes in the Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification and the Customs Tariff classification have been revised with new codes that came into effect on 1 January 2011. The new statistical codes separately identify essential oils in Chapter 33, and identify substances controlled by the Montreal and Stockholm Conventions in Chapters 29 and 38. The changes do not impact directly on the presentation of statistics in this publication but do impact on detailed import and export statistics available via ABS Client Services.
