The SITC classification is applied to compile foreign trade statistics owing to its international comparability. This classification maintained by the UN is used in most countries. On the basis of detailed nomenclatures (HS, CN), commodities are classified by SITC into rougher categories e.g. with regard to their degree of processing. Since the SITC classification is not amended annually, it enables comparisons by means of longer time series.
