The United Nations Statistical Commission in 1989 adopted two major economic classifications: the third revision of the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities and the provisional Central Product Classification. Their adoption represented the culmination of more than a decade of effort by both the Statistical Office of the UN Secretariat and the Commission, in co-operation with the European Economic Community and other international organizations. The Economic and Social Council recommended that Member States adopt the revised Industrial Classification and make use of the Central Product Classification.
