This paper summarises changes that are being made to the classifications used to present Australia's import and export statistics. These changes are to be implemented from 1 January 2007.

The changes are the result of revisions to the international classifications and will effect individuals and organisations who are either:
involved in importing or exporting goods; or
using ABS merchandise trade or balance of payments statistics.

Both the Harmonized System (HS) and the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) will change. The ABS will also change the way in which the Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification is published.

This discussion paper relates to the 5439.0 and 5368.0 families.
