CREDITS (EXPORTS OF GOODS & SERVICES)
DEBITS (IMPORTS OF GOODS & SERVICES)
Revisions have been made to incorporate the latest available data relating to merchandise trade. There were no revisions to the balance of payments series in original terms. Seasonally adjusted and trend series have been revised as the incorporation of estimates for the latest month results in revised seasonal factors under the concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
CHANGES TO EXPORT AND IMPORT STATISTICAL CODES
Statistical codes in the Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC) and the Customs Tariff classifications will be revised with new codes coming into effect on 1 January 2010. The changes result from the introduction of new statistical codes for identifying ozone depleting substances and will only affect chapters 29 and 38. The changes will not impact directly on the presentation of statistics in this publication but will impact on detailed import and export statistics provided via ABS Client Services.
The Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC), Jan 2007 (cat. no. 1233.0) will be updated on the ABS web site on 17 December 2009. Revised pages for the Customs Tariff will be re-issued shortly by the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service.
