Detailed structure and explanatory notes

ISIC Rev.4 code E


  • Section: E - Water supply; sewerage, waste management and remediation activities


This Section is divided into the following Divisions:

  • 36 - Water collection, treatment and supply
  • 37 - Sewerage
  • 38 - Waste collection, treatment and disposal activities; materials recovery
  • 39 - Remediation activities and other waste management services

Explanatory note

This section includes activities related to the management (including collection, treatment and disposal) of various forms of waste, such as solid or non-solid industrial or household waste, as well as contaminated sites. The output of the waste or sewage treatment process can either be disposed of or become an input into other production processes. Activities of water supply are also grouped in this section, since they are often carried out in connection with, or by units also engaged in, the treatment of sewage.
