Standard International Trade Classification

English Abstract: 

"The scope of SITC, Revision 4, remains the same as that of SITC, Revision 3, that is to say SITC, Revision 4, covers all goods classifiable in HS except for monetary gold, gold coin and current coin. All SITC, Revision 4, basic headings (except for 911.0 and 931.0) are defined in terms of HS07 subheadings. Since SITC is now recommended only for analytical purposes, there was no need - except in several special cases - to create new basic headings in SITC, Revision 4, that would be in one-to-one correspondence with the new HS07 subheadings.
SITC, Revision 4, retains the overall structure of SITC, Revision 3, and consists of the same number of sections, divisions and groups. The changes made were at the level of basic headings and some subgroups. SITC, Revision 4, contains 2,970 basic headings."
