  4. ISIC 3311: Delete inclusion "- repair and maintenance of shopping carts". They are produced in ISIC 3099 and their repair should be in 3315. Delete the exclusion in 3315.
  5. ISIC 2651: Delete 6th exclusion (referring to simple mechanical measuring tools) and replace with the following "- manufacture of levels, tape measures and similar hand tools, machinists' precision tools, see 2819" to correct a discrepancy between descriptions.
