Updating ANZSCO

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

Latest Update

A comprehensive review of ANZSCO has commenced to reflect the contemporary Australian labour market and better meet stakeholders’ needs. 

This review will assist government, industry, and businesses to inform and shape educational pathways, skilled migration programs and workforce strategies that support the labour market.

Coming Up

We will be working with stakeholders to identify where changes to the classification may be required. Public consultation rounds will be held across 2023 and 2024 with each round targeting selected occupations grouped by focus area.

Submissions will be invited on these focus areas through the ABS Consultation Hub.

Consultation rounds will remain open for a minimum of 12 weeks to provide users of the classification an extended timeframe to submit feedback on their area(s) of interest.

Find the public consultation schedule and information on how to participate.
