This edition of the ACLC is the result of a minor review of the second edition. The main aim of this review was to update the concordances of the ACLC with the revised editions of ANZSIC and the new versions of ANZSCO, and to make the required changes resulting from the adoption of the Central Product Classification (CPC) as the new overarching framework for product classifications in the ACLC. A summary of the changes is set out below.

ACLC Industry Classes were reviewed to improve their alignment with ANZSIC 2006 (Revision 2.0) while maintaining the conceptual basis of the ACLC where possible. Since ANZSIC used supply side principles for coding activities, whilst the ACLC Industry Classification is a purpose or use-based classification, achieving a one-to-one correspondence between the two classifications was not possible. Therefore, some of the ACLC classes only partially correspond to the ANZSIC 2006 (Revision 2.0) classes.

Primary Activity changes in the Industry Classification

There were seven classes where a primary activity was added or removed. In all cases these changes were minor.

The first change is to the Class 113 ‘Antiques and collectables dealing and restoration’. This class now includes the primary activity of Electronic auction.

There have been several additional primary activities added to Class 221 ‘Music performance’. These are:

      • Choirs/Choral groups;
      • Music groups;
      • Musicians (except music groups); and
      • Small ensembles/Quartets/Chamber groups.
Class 222 ‘Drama’ has an additional primary activity of Theatre productions.

Class 223 ‘Dance’ has an additional primary activity of Dancers (not dance group).

Class 225 ‘Other performing arts’ has three additional primary activities:

      • Celebrities/Media presenters;
      • Comedians; and
      • Tribute shows.
A new primary activity of Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Provision (software-based) has been included in Class 268 ‘Electronic information services’.

Class 341 ‘Sports and physical recreation goods manufacturing’ has had a minor amendment to its primary activities. The primary activity of Clothing manufacturing for use in sports and physical recreation now includes knitted fabric.

In addition to the above, there are additional exclusions/references for Class 419 ‘Other gambling activities’.

Finally, there have been minor amendments to the definition and exclusions/references for Class 431 ‘Pubs Taverns and Bars’ and amendments to the exclusions/references for Class 433 ‘Hospitality clubs'.

Changes to the Product Classification

There have been numerous changes to the ACLC Product Classification resulting from the move from the Australian and New Zealand Standard Product Classification (ANZSPC) to the Central Product Classification (CPC) Version 2.
