Definition: Classification of Types of Constructions
The Classification of Types of Constructions (CC) has been developed on the basis of the provisional Central Product Classification (CPC) published in 1991 by the United Nations. CC is designed to serve different purposes such as statistics on construction activities, construction reports, building and housing censuses and price statistics on construction work and national accounts. In addition, CC is to be used for the definition of constructions which will be needed for the provision of information on specific variables (e.g. building permits, production) concerning short term indicators. Also, CC is designed to be used for the whole life of a construction : changes in use, transactions, renovations, demolition. Finally, CC could be used as classification standard for the procurement and tenders on public works contracts initiated by the Commission.
