• The ILO Department of Statistics provided technical support to Eurostat and member states on the implementation the International Standard Classification of Occupations, 2008 (ISCO-08) in European and national statistical collections. This was achieved primarily by means of a Web forum hosted by Eurostat but also involved direct assistance to a number of countries.

• Data on occupation have been classified according to ISCO-08 in all relevant European Union collections from 2011 onwards.

• The English version of ISCO-08 was released as an ILO publication in May 2012.  Work is proceeding to provide versions in French, Spanish and Russian. Documentation is available on the ILO Website in English, French and Spanish.
