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.)August 1, 1997
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.El grupo de Mercosur ha decidido trabajar para lograr un clasificador comun de Mercosur para usos estadísticos basados en la estructura de la CIIU 4 que haya sido aprobada hasta junio de 2004. Dado que el acuerdo es que a 2 dígitos la ISIC internacional y la ISIC de MERCOSUR coincida. El motivo del apuro es que algunos paises de MERCOSUR realizaran sus censos económicos en 1994 y 1995, si no se implementa el clasificador para estos censos, luego aplicar la nueva versión de la ISIC deberá esperar los censos de 2013/2014.

In december of 2004 will be approved the new National Classification based on ISIC rev 4 (2 or 3 digit, it depends on how many digit will be approved in the Statistical Commision) because between 2004 and 2005, some of Mercosur Countries will have the National Economic Census. In accordance of that Mercosur Group agree that, we will have a Mercosur Classification around December 2004. We hope that the main groups of the ISIC 4 will be approved for this time.
