Update Procedure for the System of National Accounts

To facilitate the implementation of the results of work on the research agenda of the SNA into international standards or handbooks, research is coordinated under the auspices of the ISWGNA. Proposals for task forces or expert groups to conduct research on specific topics should be submitted to the ISWGNA for its consideration. The ISWGNA will asses the results in accordance with the update procedures for the SNA established by the United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC). When the outcome would necessitate a change to the SNA the ISWGNA will present it to the UNSC for adoption.
