Standardised industry codes

Standardised industrial codes are a classification system which allows for identification of groupings of businesses which carry out similar activities.  Industrial classification codes are a useful tool when searching for individual businesses operating in an industry sector and for evaluating or benchmarking performance within an industry.

Australian and New Zealand businesses are classified under the ANZSIC classification system.

Some widely used international codes are NAICS and SIC.  See below for more detailed information on these codes.
