Harmonization of Industrial Production Statistics with EU standards is one of the main tasks of activities under this Component. It would be achieved through elaboration of industrial production list based on CPA and PRODCOM 2008 and design of methodology for time series recalculations in production statistics. A methodology on retrospective calculations will be developed jointly by MS and BC experts and will comprise requirements, principles and methods for revision of time series and their practical application on industry statistics. Discussion on the application of the European approaches and compilation and updating the List of Industrial Products are within the expected results as well.
The EU experience on introduction and maintenance of PRODCOM in industry statistics will be studied during a study visit to Statistics Lithuania.
