Background Information
Major changes from ANZSIC 1996

 

ANZSIC 2006 separately identifies 19 divisions, compared with 17 in ANZSIC 1996. The major changes are explained in the table below.

Change  Industry  Details 
New division Information media and telecommunications Division J division brings together information-related services from a number of divisions to create a more up-to-date view of this rapidly growing sector. This new division includes units from ANZSIC96 Subdivision 24 Printing, Publishing and Recorded Media; Division J Communication Services; Subdivision 91 Motion Picture, Radio and Television Services, consistent with the decisions adopted in ISIC Revision 4.
Splitting divisions Property and business services ANZSIC96 Division L Property and Business Services (together with some other services) have been rearranged into three new divisions in ANZSIC06: Division L Rental, Hiring and Real Estate Services; Division M Professional, Scientific and Technical Services; and Division N Administrative and Support Services. The three separate divisions align with ISIC Revision 4. 
Applying the production function concept Government-owned units Under the production function concept, ownership is not a criterion for classification, and therefore units whose sole activity is the undertaking, or actual delivery, of government programmes are excluded from ANZSIC06 Division 0 Public Administration and Safety, and included in the classification which records the type of service they are delivering. In addition, some private sector units engaged in public administration or safety activities have moved into ANZSIC06 Division O Public Administration and Safety, (for example, ANZSIC06 Class 7712 Investigation and Security Services).
Applying the production function concept Repair and maintenance Repair and maintenance activities generally have a different production function to the units that create the products being repaired or maintained. They have therefore moved from their respective industries into a new ANZSIC06 Subdivision 94 Repair and Maintenance within ANZSIC06 Division S Other Services. Examples include automotive repair and maintenance, domestic appliance repair and maintenance, and footwear repair. Repair and maintenance activity for aircraft, ship and boat, residential and non-residential buildings, and other construction, remain in their respective industries.
Classifying vertically integrated units to their predominant activity Manufacturers' sales In ANZSIC96, manufacturers who sold their products directly to end consumers were in some cases (for example, bakeries) classified as retailers. Under ANZSIC06 this treatment has been changed so that units that undertake both the manufacture and sale of their produce within one unit are classified to Division C Manufacturing.
Classifying units to their predominant activity Contract manufacturing Contract manufacturers or converters have been reclassified from Wholesale and Retail Trade to ANZSIC 2006 Division C Manufacturing. Converters are units that own the material inputs which are processed on a commission basis by other units (classified to manufacturing) to produce the final outputs which are also owned by the converter. Units that do not own the material inputs or process the goods are not considered manufacturers and will continue to be classified to either ANZSIC06 Division F Wholesale Trade or Division G Retail Trade.
Classifying units to their predominant activity Commission buying and selling Two new ANZSIC06 Classes 3800 Commission-Based Wholesaling and 4320 Retail Commission-Based Buying and/or Selling have been created to bring together units previously spread through Wholesale Trade, Retail Trade, and Property and Business Services depending on what the units are selling.
Change in coding practice Wholesale and retail trade The coding to the Wholesale and Retail Trade divisions has changed. Under ANZSIC06 a unit that sells to both businesses and the general public is classified to the Wholesale Trade Division if it operates from premises such as a warehouse or office with little or no display of goods, has large storage facilities and is not generally located or designed to attract a high proportion of walk-in customers. Units are classified to Retail Trade if their customers include the general public and their premises are located to attract a high volume of walk-in customers, have an extensive display of goods, and/or use mass media advertising designed to attract customers. 
Consolidating activities Scenic and sightseeing transport A new ANZSIC06 Class 5010 Scenic and Sightseeing Transport has been created to bring together units from the ANZSIC96 Group I Transport and Storage and Group P Cultural and Recreational Services.
Consolidating activities Packaging A new ANZSIC06 Class 7320 Packaging Services consolidates units providing contract packaging services. These units were previously classified to a number of areas such as Manufacturing, Wholesale Trade and Business Services.
