CHANGES TO EXPORT AND IMPORT STATISTICAL CODES

The ABS and Australian Customs Service have released the export and import statistical codes that will apply from 1 January 2007. The statistical code changes result from the implementation of an update to the international Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System.

The Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC) and Customs Tariff are designed for use by exporters, importers, customs brokers and freight forwarders in the classification of goods when providing export and import declarations to the Australian Customs Service, and to assist clients interpret export and import statistics published by the ABS.

Information about these changes is available in the Information Paper: Changes on 1 January 2007 to Statistical Codes in the AHECC and the Customs Tariff, 2007 (cat. no. 1233.0.55.001). Included with the information paper are correspondences between the codes of the current and the updated versions of the AHECC and the Customs Tariff, and correspondences between the updated versions of the AHECC and the Customs Tariff, and related classifications. The correspondences can be used by clients to understand how the changes impact on their statistics.

Clients receiving tailored detailed export and import statistics from the ABS will automatically receive the new statistical codes related to their subscription.

For further information contact Terry Whatman on (02) 6252 5409, or the ABS National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070, email client.services@abs.gov.au.
