This information paper summarises changes to the country and port classifications used for the release of ABS international merchandise trade statistics. These changes result, in part from the implementation of the 2006 United Nations Location codes and in part from analysis of overseas and Australian ports data. This paper describes the timing of the introduction of new country and port codes in export and import statistics and the changes made to classifications.
