Codes modified
1. This table presents the set of ANZSCO Version 1.3 occupations which have been modified by the 2021 Australian Update. There are eleven types of modification and combinations of these are also possible – Alternative Title(s) revised, Lead Statement revised, Tasks revised, Moved to another Unit Group; code retired Moved from old unit group: code created, Category added, Category deleted and code retired, NEC occupation list revised, Category Title revised, Specialisation(s).
2. Alternative Title(s) revised refers to the situation where new Alternative titles are added, or existing ones are deleted. An example is the addition (deletion) of “Urban Forester” as an Alternative Title for 362212 – Arborist..
3. Lead Statement revised refers to the situation where the lead statement of an occupation is modified. An example is the addition of “for forestry conservation and production purposes” to the lead statement of 721112 – Logging Plant Operator to provide additional precision regarding this occupation.
4. Tasks revised refers to the situation where the task list (at the Unit group level) has been amended. An example of this is the addition of “installing, testing and commissioning solar photo voltaic (PV) power generation systems” in the task list for Unit group 3111, Electricians.
5. Moved to another Unit Group; code retired refers to the situation where the occupation’s Unit Group has changed. An example is the reclassification of 361211 – Shearers from ANZSCO Version 1.3 Unit Group 3611 to 2021 Australian Update Unit Group 3633.

7. Category added refers to a newly created occupation code in the 2021 Australian Update. These codes are not present in previous versions of ANZSCO.
