Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) was jointly developed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Statistics New Zealand in order to make it easier to compare industry statistics between the two countries and with the rest of the world.

The 2006 edition of the ANZSIC replaced the 1993 edition, which was the first version produced. Prior to 1993, Australia and New Zealand had separate industry classifications.

In the 2006 edition, Industry Division D has been expanded to include 'Waste Services', and 'hunting' is removed from Industry Division A.

The 2006 edition is arranged into 19 broad industry divisions:

• A — Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing

• B — Mining

• C — Manufacturing

• D — Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services

• E — Construction

• F — Wholesale Trade

• G — Retail Trade

• H — Accommodation and Food Services

• I — Transport, Postal and Warehousing

• J — Information Media and Telecommunications

• K — Financial and Insurance Services

• L — Rental, Hiring and Real Estate Services

• M — Professional, Scientific and Technical Services

• N — Administrative and Support Services

• O — Public Administration and Safety

• P — Education and Training

• Q — Health Care and Social Assistance

• R — Arts and Recreation Services

• S — Other Services

The 1993 edition, which was the first edition, appeared as follows:

• A — Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting

• B — Mining

• C — Manufacturing

• D — Electricity, gas and water supply

• E — Construction

• F — Wholesale trade

• G — Retail trade

• H — Accommodation, Food Services

• I — Transport and storage

• J — Information Media and Telecommunications

• K — Finance and insurance

• L — Rental, Hiring and Real Estate Services

• M — Professional, Scientific and Technical Services

• N — Administrative and Support Services

• O — Public Administration and Safety

• P — Education and Training

• Q — Health Care and Social Assistance

• R — Arts and Recreation Services

• S — Other Services

There are three more detailed levels called Subdivisions, Groups and Classes.

ANZSIC codes are four-digit numbers. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) uses five-digit codes referred to as Business Industry Codes.
