DESA’s Statistics Division in cooperation with the Statistics Division of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat) is organizing a Workshop on International Statistical Classifications.

Arranged primarily for CIS member countries, the Workshop will focus on the implementation of the recently revised activity and product classifications and will in particular review the current implementation and use of national activity and product classifications and their relationship to the International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities (ISIC) and the Central Product Classification (CPC) in the region.

It will also provide information on methodological changes related to the application of the classification, such as outlined in the revised introductions and address implementation issues in connection with the revised classifications.

The workshop will address country experiences and case studies and discuss measures to facilitate cooperation in the field of classifications, including coordination of work on regional/sub regional cooperation in classifications.
