Statistics Iceland collects data on external trade, i.e. Icelandic exports and imports of goods and services. Data of exports and imports of goods are derived chiefly from customs declarations but the source of data for exports and imports of services are information from companies and information of the use of credit cards. The definitions and processing of external trade statistics are according to international standards. Exported and imported goods are classified according to the Icelandic Customs Tariff which complies with the international Harmonised System and publications on external trade statistics make use of other classifications and breakdowns as well, such as the SITC, BEC (Broad Economic Categories), branches of processing, industries, countries and market regions. Exports and imports of services are classified according to EBOPS (Extended Balance of Payment Services).
