The Producer Price Indexes (PPIs) and International Trade Price Indexes (ITPIs) are subject to periodic reviews. While an important objective of the review is to update index weights and address quality issues, formal reviews provide an opportunity to reassess the scope and coverage of the indexes, changes to international best practice and other significant methodological advancement.

This information paper discusses major issues to be considered in the current review and presents ABS preliminary views on these matters. Issues to be addressed include: the purposes of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes; the organising structure of the PPIs; index use by key stakeholders; and Producer and International Trade Price Indexes release timing. Submissions to the review should reach the ABS by COB 14 October 2011.

Outcomes of the review are expected to be published in February 2012.
