ÖNACE 2008

Classification notification for ÖNACE 2008

For the production of economic statistics, it is necessary that each enterprise is classified according to its economic activity. This classification is based on the NACE classification of economic activities applicable in the European Union, which is called ÖNACE in a national version. ÖNACE 2008 has been in force in Austria since 2008.

Legal basis, data protection

In accordance with Section 21 of the Federal Statistics Act 2000 (Federal Law Gazette No. 163/1999 in the current version), Statistics Austria is obliged to provide every Austrian company with written information about its classification assignment free of charge.
