Purpose

The Central Product Classification (CPC) constitutes a comprehensive classification of all goods and services. CPC presents categories for all products that can be the object of domestic or international transactions or that can be entered into stocks. It includes products that are an output of economic activity, including transportable goods, non-transportable goods and services. CPC, as a standard central product classification, was developed to serve as an instrument for assembling and tabulating all kinds of statistics requiring product detail. Such statistics may cover production, intermediate and final consumption, capital formation, foreign trade or prices. They may refer to commodity flows, stocks or balances and may be compiled in the context of input/output tables, balance of payments and other analytical presentations. The CPC classifies products based on the physical characteristics of goods or on the nature of the services rendered. CPC was developed primarily to enhance harmonization among various fields of economic and related statistics and to strengthen the role of national accounts as an instrument for the coordination of economic statistics. It provides a basis for recompiling basic statistics from their original classifications into a standard classification for analytical use.

Relationship to Other International Classifications

HS 2012

With regard to transportable goods, a very close relationship exists between the Central Product Classification and the Harmonized System, as CPC subclasses in sections 0 to 4 generally constitute groupings and rearrangements of complete categories of the Harmonized System. As a result, a total of 1 617 CPC subclasses have been defined, using over 5 000 headings and subheadings of the 2012 Harmonized System as building blocks.

 

ISIC Revision 4

The Central Product Classification and the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities are both general-purpose classifications, with the ISIC representing the activity side of these two interrelated United Nations classifications. Each subclass of the CPC consists of goods or services that are generally produced in a specific class or classes of the ISIC, Rev.4.

Revision Information

At the core of the revision process were several objectives, namely (a) to reflect in the CPC newly emerging products or products that better reflect changing production patterns; (b) to reflect outputs of newly defined industries of ISIC Revision 4; (c) to take into account the changes in the 2012 edition of the Harmonized Commodity Coding and Description System (HS); (d) to review the product detail necessary for statistics on agriculture, ICT and information products and (e) to review the conceptual basis of CPC, including issues concerning the scope of the classification and the definition of and distinction between goods and services.

 

In collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), significant detail has been added in CPC Ver.2 in sections 0 and 2, related to agricultural and food products, fertilizers and agricultural machinery. Also fishery products in division 04 and forest products in divisions 03 and 31 have been updated.

Purpose of the Classification

Statistical Domain

Economic statistics

Purpose

The Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP) is the international reference classification of household expenditure. The objective of COICOP is to provide a framework of homogeneous categories of goods and services, which are considered a function or purpose of household consumption expenditure. COICOP is an integral part of the System of National Accounts (SNA), but it is also used in several other statistical areas, such as: household expenditure statistics based on household budget surveys and the analysis of living standards; consumer price indices; international comparisons of gross domestic product (GDP) and its component expenditures through purchasing power parities; and statistics relating to culture, sports, food, health, and tourism.

Methodology

Concept Being Classified

Expenditures, goods, services

Relationship to Other International Classifications

Relation to COPNI, COPP, COFOG


COICOP 2018 is divided into three parts:

• Divisions 01 to 13 Individual consumption expenditure of households;

• Division 14 Individual consumption expenditure of NPISH;

• Division 15 Individual consumption expenditure of general government.


The purpose breakdowns within Divisions 14 and 15 of COICOP 2018 replicate the purposes in the classifications for NPISH in COPNI and general government in COFOG. Thus, once the consumption expenditures of NPISHs and general government have been classified according to COPNI and COFOG, the individual consumption expenditures in these two classifications can be transferred directly into Divisions 14 and 15 of COICOP 2018.


Relation to CPC

The Central Product Classification (CPC) is closely linked with COICOP, since expenditures on products are the basic building blocks of COICOP classes, and correspondences can be established between categories in the two classifications.


Relation to ISCED

The International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED 2011) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is used to define the breakdown of educational services in Division 10 (Education). The content of Division 10 was modified to better align it with ISCED 2011.


Relation to ICHA

Division 06 (Health) was considerably revised to improve the consistency of COICOP 2018 with the International classification for health accounts (ICHA). This will allow the reconciliation of health accounting with the SNA and its accompanying classifications.

Purpose

The purpose of the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC) is to provide a set of activity categories that can be utilized for the collection and reporting of statistics according to such activities. Since the adoption of the original version of ISIC in 1948, ISIC has provided guidance to countries in developing national activity classifications and has become an important tool for comparing statistical data on economic activities at the international level. Wide use has been made of ISIC, both nationally and internationally, in classifying data according to kind of economic activity in the fields of economic and social statistics, such as for statistics on national accounts, demography of enterprises, employment and others.

Purpose

The Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System generally referred to as 'Harmonized System' or simply 'HS' is a multipurpose international product nomenclature developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO). It comprises about 5,000 commodity groups; each identified by a six digit code, arranged in a legal and logical structure and is supported by well-defined rules to achieve uniform classification. The system is used by more than 200 countries and economies as a basis for their Customs tariffs and for the collection of international trade statistics. Over 98 % of the merchandise in international trade is classified in terms of the HS. The HS contributes to the harmonization of Customs and trade procedures, and the non-documentary trade data interchange in connection with such procedures, thus reducing the costs related to international trade. It is also extensively used by governments, international organizations and the private sector for many other purposes such as internal taxes, trade policies, monitoring of controlled goods, rules of origin, freight tariffs, transport statistics, price monitoring, quota controls, compilation of national accounts, and economic research and analysis. The HS is thus a universal economic language and code for goods, and an indispensable tool for international trade.

Revision Information

The latest revision, as well as the previous ones, were made on the basis of a permanent process, in order to keep the Harmonized System updated in light of developments in technology and changes in trade patterns.

 

In a press release dated 3 January 2012, issued at the occasion of the entry into force of the 5th edition of the Harmonized System Nomenclature, the main changes were described as follows : 'The 2012 version includes 220 sets of amendments: 98 relating to the agricultural sector; 27 to the chemical sector; 9 to the paper sector; 14 to the textile sector; 5 to the base metal sector; 30 to the machinery sector; and an additional 37 that apply to a variety of other sectors. Environmental and social issues are the major feature of these amendments, particularly the use of the HS as the standard for classifying and coding goods of specific importance to food security and the early warning data system of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). HS 2012 also features new classification provisions for specific chemicals controlled under the Rotterdam Convention and ozone-depleting substances controlled under the Montreal Protocol to further respond to global environment protection efforts. Changing trade patterns too played a role in the new version as did efforts to simplify the HS, recognized universally as a multi-purpose tool and used extensively as a basis for Customs tariffs and for the collection of national and international trade statistics.

 

From the legal point of view, according to the International Convention on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System, the Harmonized System is not amended between two successive editions (presently issued every 5 years). The amendments finalized during each review cycle are published as soon as they are agreed in the successive reports of the Review Sub-Committee (which met twice a year) and, subsequently, of the Harmonized System Committee (which met twice a year) as soon as they have been approved, under the status of “provisionally adopted amendments”. As far as the availability of information regarding scheduled corrections between two revisions is concerned, it should be noted that all the relevant working documents and reports (Harmonized System Committee / Review Sub-Committee / Scientific Sub-Committee) are available on our website – in electronic PDF format – to WCO Members (*) as soon as they have been issued. So, during a particular review cycle, the Members which are not attending HSC, RSC and SSC sessions on a regular basis are nevertheless informed about the development of the list of amendments agreed for further implementation.

General (including food and nutrition)

This section contains the main statistical guidelines and handbooks produced by FAO.

Documents listed under the general subject cover topics that are more overarching in nature and encompass several dimensions of the food and agriculture sector (in a broad sense). They include for example: broad conceptual frameworks (e.g. System of Environmental-Economic Accounts, SDG indicators, etc.), economic-related statistics and frameworks (e.g. food prices, costs of production, etc.), social-related statistics and frameworks (labour and employment, gender, etc.) and food and nutrition statistics and frameworks (e.g. food balance sheets, food loss, food consumption, food security and hunger, etc.).

Manual de Estadísticas sobre Costos de Producción Agrícola - Lineamientos para la Recolección, Compilación y Difusión de Datos

Abstract: Esta versión del Manual de Estadísticas sobre Costos de Producción Agrícola (CoP) fue elaborada con recursos de la Estrategia Global para el Mejoramiento de las Estadísticas Agrícolas y Rurales (Estrategia Global), iniciativa que fue aprobada por la Comisión Estadística de las Naciones Unidas en el 2010. La Estrategia Global provee un marco y un modelo para cumplir con las necesidades actuales y emergentes de los formuladores de políticas y de otros usuarios de la información. Su propósito es contribuir a una mayor seguridad alimentaria, reducir la volatilidad en los precios de los alimentos, generar mayores ingresos y también un mayor bienestar en poblaciones agrícolas y rurales por medio políticas basadas en datos empíricos. El Plan de Acción de la Estrategia Global se enfoca en tres pilares básicos: (1) establecer un conjunto mínimo de datos fundamentales; (2) la integración de la información agropecuaria al Sistema Estadístico Nacional (SEN) y (3) fomentar la sostenibilidad del sistema estadístico por medio de la gobernanza y de la creación de capacidades estadísticas.

Purpose of the classification

Statistical Domain

Agriculture statistics

Purpose

FCL is a unique commodity tree-based classification established by FAO for the purpose of bringing together Agricultural Production and Trade data into the framework of Food Balance sheet and Commodity balances.

Main Applications

Agricultural statistics, agricultural censuses, Food Balance Sheets.

Main Users

FCL has been phased out and is currently used in the context of mapping CPC and HS classifications for internal purpose only.

Methodology

Scope

The FAOSTAT Commodity List (FCL) is the classification of food and agriculture commodities (originally 683 items grouped in 20 chapters) that has been used in FAOSTAT since the 1960s.

In the new FAOSTAT Statistical Working System, the FCL has been replaced by the Central Product Classification of the United Nations (CPC) expanded for agriculture, in order to ensure a better alignment with international standards.

Concept Being Classified

Crops, livestock and their derived products

Relationship to Other International Classifications

Related To:

Central Product Classification (CPC) Ver. 2.1

Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) 2017

 

Major Differences (Scope, Structure, and Concepts):


Discrepancies can be noticed in structure, as the FCL follows the pattern of the so-called “commodity tree”, in which the parent item is the primary commodity (e.g. wheat) and the children items are its derived products (e.g. flour made from wheat).

Purpose of the Classification

Statistical Domain

Agriculture statistics

Purpose

The classification of livestock covers all livestock of any type being raised on the holding; livestock refers to all animals, birds and insects kept or reared in captivity mainly for agricultural purposes (domestic animals such as cats and dogs are excluded, unless they are being raised for food or other agricultural purposes).

Main Applications

Agricultural statistics and agricultural censuses

Main Users

Ministries of Agriculture and National Statistical Offices carrying out agricultural censuses

Methodology

Scope

The classification of livestock covers all livestock of any type being raised on the holding; livestock refers to all animals, birds and insects kept or reared in captivity mainly for agricultural purposes (domestic animals such as cats and dogs are excluded, unless they are being raised for food or other agricultural purposes). The animals raised include those present on the holding, as well as those being grazed on communal grazing land or in transit at the time of enumeration; bees are counted in terms of number of hives. A holding raises an animal if it has primary responsibility for looking after the animal on a long-term basis and making day-to-day decisions about its use, regardless of ownership. If countries wish to subdivide a livestock type by breed or raising method, they may expand the classification accordingly.

Concept Being Classified

Goods, animals

Relationship to Other International Classifications

Related To:

Classification of livestock - Central Product Classification (CPC) Ver. 2.1

 

Major Differences (Scope, Structure, and Concepts):

No major differences; however, differently from livestock in CPC, this classification is focused on the livestock raised on the holding exclusively. This results in only minor differences as compared to CPC in its structure. The classification of livestock has a two-level structure. No major differences.

Purpose of the Classification

Statistical Domain

Agriculture statistics

Purpose

The WCA classification of machinery and equipment classifies machinery and equipment (manually operated, animal-powered and machine-powered) used on the holding, wholly or partly for agricultural production (machinery and equipment used exclusively for purposes other than agricultural production are excluded, as well as those owned by the holder but not used). A broad concept of machinery and equipment is used for the agricultural census, covering all machinery, equipment and implements used as inputs to agricultural production (including everything from simple hand tools, such as a hoe, to complex machinery such as a combine harvester).

Main Applications

Agricultural statistics and agricultural censuses

Main Users

Ministries of Agriculture and National Statistical Offices carrying out agricultural censuses

Methodology

Scope

Machinery and equipment (manually operated, animal-powered and machine-powered) used on the agricultural holding.

Concept Being Classified

Goods, equipment

Relationship to Other International Classifications

Related To:

HS 2012

 

Major Differences (Scope, Structure, and Concepts):

Machinery in the HS is the most relevant for international trade while in this classification is the machinery and equipment most used on the holding therefore it is often more detailed than the HS. Three-digits (and three-level) structure in the Classification of Machinery and Equipment vs six-digit structure in the HS. The high level categories in the WCA livestock classification (groups) do not exist in the HS; lower level subclasses in links to the HS are 1:1 but at different level (can be at six or four digits).

Major Differences (Scope, Structure, and Concepts):

The key difference between product and crop classifications is that the ICC refers to crops that are grown in the field (i.e. to the plant), while the CPC refers to the product(s) generated from that crop; for example, “mustard” is an oilseed crop, whereas “mustard seed” is the oilseed product. ICC has four level structure and seven-digit codes. However, both high level and detailed categories are highly harmonized with CPC. No major difference.

Purpose of the Classification

Statistical Domain

Fishery and aquaculture statistics

Purpose

For statistical purposes, particularly for reporting fishery and aquaculture production. FAO Major Fishing Areas for Statistical Purposes are arbitrary areas, the boundaries of which have been determined in consultation with international fishery agencies. The rationale of the FAO Major Fishing Areas has been that the areas should, as far as possible, coincide with the areas of competence of other fishery commissions when existing. This system facilitates comparison of data, and improves the possibilities of cooperation in statistical matters in general.

Main Applications

To classify capture fisheries and aquaculture production by areas where the fish is caught or harvested. When establishing new regional fishery bodies, FAO Major Areas often becomes a basis to determine the scope of their jurisdiction.

Main Users

Criteria for Definition of Levels

The FAO Major Fishing Areas for Statistical Purposes are arbitrary areas the boundaries of which were determined in consultation with international fishery agencies on the basis of various considerations, including: the boundary of natural regions and the natural divisions of oceans and seas; the boundaries of adjacent statistical fisheries bodies that had already been established in intergovernmental conventions and treaties; existing national practices; national boundaries; the longitude and latitude grid system; the distribution of the aquatic fauna; the distribution of resources and the environmental conditions within an area.

For statistical purposes, 26 major areas currently exist. These comprise:  seven major inland areas covering the inland waters of the continents and 19 major marine areas covering the waters of the Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans, with their adjacent seas. Until 1990, another area existed for inland area “Former USSR area”.

Some FAO major marine areas are further divided into subareas, divisions and subdivisions, according to the needs of the regional fishery management bodies responsible for managing the fisheries and fishery resources of the individual FAO Major Areas. These systems of subareas, divisions and subdivisions have been successfully developed and implemented by relevant regional fishery bodies; any modifications are duly reported to CWP.

Statistical Domain

Fishery and aquaculture statistics

Purpose

Please note that this is a list, not a classification. ASFIS is a list of species used to classify fisheries and aquaculture data at either the species, genus, family or higher taxonomic levels in statistical categories referred to as species items.

Main Applications

Classifying aquaculture and fisheries data by species items. Used by countries, regional and international organizations when reporting and exchanging information.

Main Users

FAO, national fishery and aquaculture statistical offices, international organizations, regional fisheries bodies

Methodology

Scope

To classify fisheries and aquaculture species items by an ISSCAAP code, a taxonomic code, a 3-alpha code, a scientific name, taxonomic classification at family and at a higher taxonomic level.

Criteria for Definition of Levels

ASFIS is a list of species that includes 12 771 species items (2019 version), selected on the basis of their interest or relation to fisheries and aquaculture. For each species item stored in a record, the following descriptors are available:

  • 3-alpha code has been developed by the CWP and it is assigned to a species item permanently (it is, thus, a permanent reference to that species item). The 3-alpha code is issued only for species of commercial significance and it is widely used for exchange of data among fisheries agencies and for national submission of data to FAO and other agencies. FAO is the depository agency for the 3-alpha codes: requests for information and for the allocation of a 3-alpha code to new species should be addressed to FAO.


  • ISSCAAP code classifies aquatic commercial species on the basis of their taxonomic, ecological and economic characteristics. More information is available under ISSCAAP classification.


  • Taxonomic code is a ten-digit numerical code covering the following information: main groupings, orders, families, genera and species. In a few special cases, three additional digits have been added.


  • Taxonomic information related to scientific name, author(s), family, and higher taxonomic classification.

Next Review:

2020. An updated version of the ASFIS List is released each year at about April-May after the annual closure of the FAO capture and aquaculture production databases.


Reason for Latest Revision:

Additions of new species for which statistics became available and/or due to changes in the scientific names and taxonomic classifications proposed in the scientific literature by taxonomists.

 

Major Changes:

Minor changes are generally implemented in every annual release. The approach followed is that in case of changes of scientific names and creation of new species proposed in the scientific literature by taxonomists, they are included in the ASFIS list only when such changes have been recognized by the majority of taxonomists and are well consolidated among people dealing with fishery matters and, in particular, fishery statistics.

Purpose of the Classification

Statistical Domain

Fishery and aquaculture statistics

Purpose

This classification is designed to cover the products derived from fish, crustaceans, molluscs, other aquatic animals and plants for which the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) collects national statistics on production and trade on a regular basis. It includes live species as well products resulting from further processing of species destined to human consumption or to other purposes including ornamental.

Main Applications


For collection and dissemination of fisheries commodities production and trade statistics by FAO. One basic purpose of the classification system for fish and fishery products was to improve presentation of comparability of statistics of different types collected from a wide range of sources. It also serves as: a) a basis for statistical collection procedures; b) a framework for compilation and presentation of statistics; c) aggregates and elements for analyses; d) a set of elements (or building blocks) suitable for rearrangement or expansion for special studies or for special purpose classification systems.

Main Users

Users of the FAO Fisheries commodities production and trade statistics and Fishery statistical offices.

Methodology

Scope

The ISSCFC classification is designed to cover fish, crustaceans, molluscs, other aquatic animals, plants and their based products for which FAO collects production and trade statistics on a regular basis. Products are classified according to the species and to the degree of processing. It also includes species for ornamental purposes, for culture (i.e. fingerlins, fry, etc), corals, sponges, residues, seaweeds and other algae. At present, it does not include aquatic mammals, frogs and crocodiles. Fisheries operations and services are also excluded, along with other fishery-based activities.

Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) Revision 4

Harmonized System (HS) Classification version 2017

Central Product Classification (CPC) version 2.1

 

Major Differences (Scope, Structure, and Concepts):

ISSCFC has been constructed as an expansion of SITC and it is also directly linked with the Harmonized System (HS), Central Product Classification (CPC) and ISSCAAP. It is focused on fish and fish-based products (primary and secondary) and it contains more than 1 200 codes. Therefore it presents an improved breakdown by species and product forms compared to SITC, HS and CPC. The enhanced coverage and the links with other international classifications facilitate the collation of national data received in different formats/codes, including national classification based on HS or SITC. It is based on the structure of SITC, but presenting additional codes to include links to ISSCAAP and enhanced breakdown by species and product forms. Main difference with SITC and HS is related on the enhanced detail by species/product forms included in ISSCFC, which allows the analysis, comparison and dissemination of more detailed data on fisheries commodities production and trade. ISSCFC is based on following criteria: stage of processing, group of similar biological characteristics (ISSCAAP) and purpose or intended use.

Although this classification was initially designed to improve the compilation of harmonized catch and effort data on the STATLANT B questionnaires and in fish stock assessment exercises, it has also been found very useful for fisheries technology and the training of fishers. It has been used in particular for reference in works dealing with the theory and construction of gear and for the preparation of specialized catalogues on artisanal and industrial fishing methods.

Main Applications

Identifying the fishing technology in reporting on fishing CATCH and EFFORT; a part of basic definition of different "fisheries".

Main Users

Fishery statistical offices, fishery scientists, MCS (management, control and surveillance) of fishing activities, fisheries technology and training fishers

Methodology

Scope

The classification is developed based on fish entangling mechanisms and gear structure used with a global emphasis on existing major fishing areas in the Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Antarctic Oceans.

Purpose of the Classification

Statistical Domain

Land use statistics

Purpose

To classify land use types.

Main Applications

Agricultural statistics and agricultural censuses.

Main Users

Ministries of Agriculture and National Statistical Offices carrying out agricultural censuses.

Methodology

Concept Being Classified

Land use

Relationship to Other International Classifications

This classification focuses on how land/area are used within the agricultural holding. The WCA classification of land use contains nine basic land use classes, LU1 to LU9; six of the basic land use classes can be grouped into four aggregate classes: the nine basic classes are less detailed than in the SEEA, the WCA LU aggregates are ad hoc classes, not provided in the SEEA.

Notes: LU1 (in WCA) includes greenhouses and land in family gardens while 1.1.1 (in SEEA) does not. LU4 includes greenhouses and land in family gardens while 1.1.4 does not. 1.1.6 (in SEEA) includes greenhouses and land in family gardens while LU6 in WCA) does not.

Reason for Latest Revision:

The revision took place as part of the WCA periodical review; the aim was to harmonize with the SEEA Land Use Classification.

 

Major Changes:

Increased number of classes (from seven to nine), better alignment to the SEEA LUC that resulted in the following changes: (1) two categories: “land under farm buildings and farmyards” and “area used for aquaculture” have been detached from the category “other land”. “Area used for aquaculture” may also include inland and coastal waters if they are part of the holding. (2 The concept of “land used for agriculture” has been introduced in order to match the category “agriculture” of the SEEA Land Use Classification. It represents the total of “agricultural land” and “land under farm buildings and farmyards”. (3) A minimum size threshold of 0.5 hectares (ha) has been introduced for the “forest land” and “other wooded land”. The differences between WCA 2020 and WCA 2010 LUC are clearly specified in WCA 2020, paragraph 8.2.14.
