6. In Australia during the late 1960s, the then Commonwealth Bureau of Census and Statistics drew together the several distinct industrial classifications it had been using to produce the first ASIC. The original 1969 edition of the ASIC was based at the broader levels on the ISIC, with some modification to allow for comparability with previously used classifications. The structure and composition of the finer levels was derived as a result of extensive investigations into the activity mix characteristics of Australian businesses. Revised editions of the classification were released in 1978 and 1983, the latter being a partial revision only.
