Mims Davies MP is encouraging residents who wish to, to take part in the consultation on the UK adoption of industrial classification of economic activity.
This public consultation is aimed primarily at statistical users. It is therefore assumed that those users are likely to understand how each of the presented options could affect their current and future use for the production of statistics. The consultation is also open to wider users from across the UK. This allows us to gather a broader set of opinions and better understand what impacts or challenges may result from any change to the current UK SIC.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is consulting to gather views on:
- which international classification framework the UK should adopt
- to what level of alignment the UK should adopt this preference
- whether the additional UK disaggregation to five digit subclass level should continue
- how different options could impact current users of the classification framework.
Take part in the consultation here
Deadline is 23rd January, 2024
The ONS are hosting free webinars where attendees can find out more about the different classification frameworks and levels, and pose questions they may have ahead of completing the consultation.

The ONS has also developed a frequently asked questions guide, alongside the consultation document, which can be found in the ‘related’ section at the bottom of the consultation page
