Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification

The Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) is the standard classification used in Australia and New Zealand for the collection, compilation and publication of statistics by industry.

ANZSIC is a key component of an integrated statistical framework, providing a standard framework for classifying establishments (e.g. individual mines, shops, factories, etc.) and other statistical units by industry in official statistics. It is the means by which each establishment is classified to the same industry in all statistical collections in which it is included.

In 2006, an updated version of ANZSIC was released, replacing the previous 1993 edition. The 2006 ANZSIC provides a more contemporary and internationally comparable industrial classification system.

The full classification can be downloaded from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website: ANZSIC (2006 Edition), ABS Cat. no. 1292.0.

Information and related tools for transition from ANZSIC 1993 to ANZSIC 2006 are also available.
