Statistics Explained


PRODCOM is an annual survey for the collection and dissemination of statistics on the production of industrial (mainly manufactured) goods, both in value and quantity terms, in the European Union (EU). It is abbreviated from the French Production Communautaire.

The PRODCOM survey is based on a list of products called the PRODCOM list which currently comprises about 4000 headings relating to industrial products and some industrial services. These products are detailed at an eight-digit level. The first four digits refer to the equivalent class within the Statistical classification of economic activities in the European Community (NACE), and the next two digits refer to subcategories within the Statistical classification of products by activity (CPA). Most PRODCOM headings correspond to one or more Combined nomenclature (CN) codes.
