Subsequent to a public consultation in 2007, ONS has replaced the original 'Protocol on Statistical Integration' with a revised and expanded version which is now entitled: 'Protocol on Statistical Integration and Classification'. The revised Protocol incorporates additional material on statistical classification as well as a new Annex relating to the classification of sectors and transactions within the UK's National Accounts.
