The Expert Group on International Statistical Classifications will hold its biennial meeting in New York on 19-22 May 2015. It will discuss a wide range of topics, targeting specific classifications and broader issues including: the new concept of the Family of International Classifications, metadata standards and information models, the impact of the integration of statistical and geospatial information on international classifications, and implications for classifications arising out of the use of big data.

Among the individual classifications to be discussed by the Expert group are: a proposal to revise the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP), a discussion on the need to revise the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC), and the recent update of the Central product Classification (CPC).

The Expert Group will also review progress made in the revisions of the Classification by Broad Economic Categories (BEC), the International Classification of Activities for Time Use Statistics (ICATUS) and the International Classification of Status in Employment (ICSE-93) and discuss experiences from the development and implementation of classifications such as the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO08), the International Classification for Crime Statistics (ICCS) and the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS).
