The current SITC-Rev.4 was introduced in January 2007, thereby replacing the previous SITC-Rev.3 (1988-2006). The commodity numbers and texts are the same, with the exception of SITC 599, which was a new addition to Rev.4. However, the correlation between the years before and after 2007 may be misleading for some of the commodity numbers. The extent of this will depend on the value of the commoditiy numbers that have been moved. Correspondence tables between the two versions can be wieved at the

About the statistics
When publishing statistics for a new month of measurement, figures for the previous months in the same year are also revised. Furthermore, the figures for all months of the year are revised twice more: First time in May the following year (year t + 1), before final figures are published in May one year later (year t + 2).
