Country / Area: Slovenia

Classification category: Product classifications

 
General information
1 (a)Name of the current national classification (full name in official national languages and in English with acronyms in brackets, should be given)Klasifikacija proizvodov po dejavnosti 2008 (CPA 2008); Classification of Products by Activity 2008 (CPA 2008).
1 (b)In which language(s) is the classification available?In the Slovenian language.
1 (c)Can the classification (or information about it) be accessed on the Internet? If yes, please provide the URL.Yes. http://www.stat.si/doc/pub/CPA_2008.pdf
 
Classification structure
2 (a)Please describe the structure of the classification: How many levels does the classification have? (Please provide labels, such as “Division”, “Class”) How many categories exist at each level?The structure of the national classification is the same as the structure of the international classification CPA 2008:
a) first level, comprising headings identified by an alphabetical code (21 sections);
b) second level, comprising headings identified by a two-digit numerical code (88 divisions);
c) third level, comprising headings identified by a three-digit numerical code (261 groups);
d) fourth level, comprising headings identified by a four-digit numerical code (575 classes);
e) fifth level, comprising headings identified by a five-digit numerical code (1,342 categories);
f) sixth level, comprising headings identified by a six-digit numerical code (3,142 subcategories).

Relationship to international standards
3 (a)Is this classification based on (or linked to) an international standard classification? If yes, please describe.Yes, the national classification is translated international classification.
The CPA has been around since 2000 (OJ RS, no. 70/2000) as a mandatory standard used in recording, collection, analysis and dissemination of product information and statistics for the record. Given the fact that the Slovenian economy at the European level ranks among the smaller economies, it has been shown that the introduction of additional national subcategories of the CPA are not required, and the Slovenian version of the CPA is identical to the European one.
3 (b)Is the classification structure identical to the international standard or, if not, how does it differ? (e.g. have additional levels been added to the international standard or have changes been made within the level of the international structure, such as aggregations or additional breakdowns)The national classification is identical to the international standard.
3 (c)Please describe deviations from the international standard (in terms of structure, methodology or application rules). Please use examples, if a general statement is not possible.There are no deviations.
3 (d)At what level of the international standard can data be reported for international comparison? (Please provide examples of programmes / indicators if reporting takes place at different levels of the classification.)Data can be reported at different levels. The levels of reporting are regulated in different EU regulations.
3 (e)If no links to international classifications exist or no international standard is used, please state if there are plans to use international norms in the future. 
 
Classification uses
4 (a)Please state for which statistical purposes (surveys etc.) this classification is used and if there are users outside of the Statistical Office. Please indicate at which level the classification is used for data collection and for data publishing.In the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia CPA 2008 is used for different statistical surveys (social, business, national accounts, etc.)
In national accounts the CPA classification is used for supply-use and input-output tables (SUT/IOT). Publishing level of detail is at 2-digit CPA level. Working level by compilation of the tables is from 3-digit to 6-digit level.

For the compilation of SUT/IOT tables, data from different available branch statistics are used (manufacturing, external trade, etc.), which can be provided at or converted to the CPA classification. For the purpose of the compilation of the tables a survey for intermediate consumption (NR-IOT) is carried out on multi-annual basis, for which data collection is at 3-digit CPA level for goods and mainly 2-digit CPA level for services.

4 (b)Please give the names of institutions that use the classification for non-statistical purposes (as opposed to statistical purposes in question 4(a)). Also indicate the kind of use (e.g. tax offices, social security, customs, enterprise register, employment services, work permits etc.)Use of the CPA is for non-statistical purposes very rare.
AJPES (Agency of the Republic of Slovenia for Public Legal Records and Related Services).
4 (c)Please indicate if alternative classifications are used by other institutions of the economy. Are these classifications available and useful for the Statistical Office?There are no other alternative classifications.
 
Implementation / revision status
5 (a)Please state the date of the official adoption of the classification. If not yet adopted, please indicate the current state (e.g. in development, sent for approval, in printing, ready to be distributed etc.)CPA 2008 was introduced by Regulation (EC) No 451/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2008 establishing a new statistical classification of products by activity (CPA) and repealing Council Regulation (EEC) No 3696/93.
5 (b)Please state the date of use of the classification for individual statistical programmes.CPA 2008 is used from 1 January 2008 on.

5 (d)Name of former (previous) national classification (full name in both national tongue and in English with acronyms in brackets, should be given)Klasifikacija proizvodov po dejavnosti (CPA 2004); Classification of Products by Activity (CPA 2004).
