Philippine Central Product Classification (PCPC)

The Philippine Central Product Classification (PCPC) is a system of different but interrelated classification of economic activities and goods and services. It provides a framework for national and international comparison and promotes harmonization of various types of statistics with goods and service

The primary purpose of the PCPC is to classify the goods and services that are the result of production in the Philippine economy. This production is accounted for in the national accounts of the country. The PCPC is useful in studying transactions in goods and services in detail. It serves as a national standard for assembling and tabulating all kinds of data requiring product detail including industrial production, national accounts, service industries, domestic and foreign commodity trade, international trade in services, balance of payments, consumption and price statistics. The PCPC will therefore, provide a link between product and industry or economic activity.
