AUSTRALIAN HARMONIZED EXPORT COMMODITY CLASSIFICATION (AHECC)
The publication Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC) - Electronic Publication, Jan 2012 (cat. no. 1233.0) will be released on the ABS website on 22 August 2011. This publication presents the Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC) statistical structure for use from 1 January 2012. Changes to the AHECC result from the introduction of the five yearly review conducted by the World Customs Organisation and the ABS review of statistical codes. Some changes have been incorporated to the proposed changes presented in the Information Paper: Proposed Changes to Statistical Codes in the AHECC, 2012 (cat. no. 5368.0.55.015), as a result of the consultation process with users. This publication includes the concordance from AHECC 2007 to AHECC 2012. However, the correspondence to related classifications and free standing descriptors used for dissemination of data, will not be available until 8 December 2011. These will be provided in an Information Paper: Changes to AHECC and Customs Tariff (cat. no. 5368.0.55.017).
