This information paper summarises changes that will be made to Australian import and export statistics presented according to the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC). SITC is the United Nations' recommended classification for presenting merchandise trade statistics and is the underlying classification scheme for balance of payments goods statistics. The United Nations has issued an update to SITC which the ABS will implement from the July 2008 reference month. As a consequence of the changes to SITC, a number of related international trade classifications will also be impacted.
