Updating ANZSCO

The Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations describes all occupations for Australia and New Zealand.

Latest update

Preliminary Proposed Changes for Consultation Round 2 are now available on the ABS Consultation Hub. 

We would like to extend our appreciation for your valuable input. These changes reflect the collaborative efforts and insights provided by users, ensuring that the classification accurately represents a modern Australian labour market. 

A final consultation round in mid-2024 will allow users an opportunity to provide feedback on the complete set of proposed changes, before finalising the classification update for release by December 2024.

Coming up

This diagram shows the timeline of the ANZSCO public consultation process. The first three public consultation rounds have now closed. Consultation outcomes for round one was released in August 2023 and outcomes for round two were released in December 2023. In mid 2024 the ABS will seek feedback on the complete set of proposed changes.
