All exceptions are either aggregations or disaggregations of CPC Groups, and result from important user requirements or local data supply problems.
27. The layout of the classification is explained with reference to the following two examples from the body of the manual. The first relates to services commodities and the second to goods commodities.
28. The first three levels of the classification represent (in bold text) the Section, Division and Group level of the CPC. Further levels of the classification (plain text) represent the local Australian and New Zealand levels of the classification. These levels may or may not equate to CPC Classes or subclasses and are generally referred to as items.
29. In the 'Non-Transportable Goods' and 'Services' parts of the ANZSCC (Sections 5 to 9) the CPC field indicates the links to the detailed (5 digit) level of the CPC. These links are provided to aid the definition of the scope of individual ANZSCC items via the CPC explanatory notes described in paragraph 20 above.
30. The ANZSIC code represents what is known as the 'industry of origin' for the commodity concerned. A commodity is usually an output of a single industrial activity which is designated as the industry of origin for that commodity. It is possible, however, for a given commodity to be produced by more than one industrial activity. When this is the case, all industries of origin are indicated under the ANZSIC heading where they are significant, or a higher level of ANZSIC may be specified if there is a lack of information at the four digit level.
31. An example is ANZSCC item 391.13 'Brewing or distilling dregs or waste'. There are at least two significant industries of origin for this commodity, 'Beer and malt manufacturing' (ANZSIC 2182) and 'Spirit manufacturing' (ANZSIC 2184). The product is the same regardless of the industry of origin. The allocated industry of origin is identified at the ANZSIC Group level (i.e. 218 Beverage and malt manufacturing) as this level is broad enough to encompass all the activities involved in the production of the commodity. In the ANZSCC this level of ANZSIC is represented as 2180.
32. The UQ field refers to the 'Units of Quantity' by which data other than dollar values are collected. These mostly relate to transportable goods, but there are a few cases where they apply to non-transportable goods. The UQs are detailed with other abbreviations used in the ANZSCC.
33. For transportable goods (Sections 0 to 4 of the ANZSCC ), the SITC and HS codes are provided on the right side of each page. In addition to defining the scope of the ANZSCC items, they also indicate the links required for the compilation of comparable import, export, and production statistics. All import and export data are collected and published on an HS basis, and some are published on a SITC basis. The level of direct comparability varies from item to item, but in many cases it may be possible to construct more detailed comparisons by reference to the most detailed items of the import and export classifications.
34. There are three different sets of codes shown in the Old Code field in the transportable goods section of this classification. Items previously collected in ABS manufacturing censuses or surveys are displayed with a 5-digit code in the form 'nnn.nn'. Items collected in agricultural censuses and surveys are displayed with a 7-digit code in the form 'nn.nnn.nn'. or 'Supp' (supplementary). Items collected by the ABS in relation to mineral production are displayed with a 3-digit code in the form 'nnn'. In all cases the codes shown are, or were, those used in the respective statistical collections to identify the commodities concerned, and should be quoted in all references to data compiled prior to the implementation of the ANZSCC in these collections.
