Trade Import and Export Classification (TRIEC)

The Trade Import and Export Classification (TRIEC), has been developed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) as a means of classifying Australia's and international merchandise imports and exports by level of processing.

TRIEC is made up of three broad categories:

TRIEC is a hierarchical classification, with the broadest classes of goods defined at the 1-digit level, with progressively finer disaggregation down to a 4-digit level.
