The ABS finalised the ASGC review with the release of the Information Paper: Outcome from the Review of the Australian Standard Geographical Classification 2008 (cat. no. 1216.0.55.002) on the 25 July 2008. This paper explains that the current ASGC will be replaced in July 2011 with the new Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). The ASGS is broadly similar to the proposal in the earlier Information Paper: Review of the Australian Standard Statistical Classification 2007 (cat. no. 1216.0.55.001) with a number of important changes, which are a result of stakeholder consultation. For more detail about the review please refer to these two papers.
