The UNECE High-Level Group for the Modernisation of Statistical Production and Services Official Statistics (HLG-MOS) was set up by the Bureau of the Conference of European Statisticians in 2010 to oversee and coordinate international work relating to statistical modernisation. It promotes standards-based modernisation of statistical production and services. It reports directly to the Conference of European Statisticians and recevied its mandate from this body.
The mission of the HLG-MOS is to oversee development of frameworks, and sharing of information, tools and methods, which support the modernisation of statistical organizations. The aim is to improve the efficiency of the statistical production process, and the ability to produce outputs that better meet user needs.
