Understanding our workforce: Feedback on ANZCO review

February 8, 2024

The Australian Bureau of Statistics is reviewing the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO). ANZSCO provides a basis for the standardised collection, analysis and dissemination of occupation data for Australia and New Zealand. The classifications are important because they feed into policy on educational pathways, skilled migration programs and workforce strategies.

AIRAH highlighted issues around occupation 342111 – Airconditioning and refrigeration technician, and occupation 334112 – Airconditioning and Mechanical Services Plumber. We have received a response from the ABS and look forward to being closely involved in the final round of public consultation later in 2024.
