Notice of discontinuation of the Industry Classification Coding System (ICCS)

January 11, 2012 (Previous notice)

Statistics Canada will not be updating the Industry Classification Coding System (ICCS) to support coding to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Canada 2012. The ICCS is a tool to help users code business units at the lowest level of a classification. The last ICCS CD-ROM (version 1.4) was released in July 2008 and supports coding to NAICS 2007, 2002 and 1997 and to the 1980 Standard Industry Classification - Establishments. Since the Agency's surveys and statistical programs will not be implementing NAICS 2012 until reference year 2013, NAICS 2007 will still be in use, and the ICCS version 1.4 will have an extended "shelf life" until reference year 2013. Clients and users have access to alternate classification search tools for NAICS 2012, 2007, 2002 and 1997.
