Polish Classification of Activities

The PKD (Polish Classification of Activities) is the classification which hierarchically systematized division of the kinds of social-economic activities that are carried out by units (economic subjects). PKD (currently PKD 2007 version) was established by the Regulation of the Council of Ministers of 24 December 2007 on the Polish Classification of Activities (PKD) (Journal of Laws No. 251, item 1885). PKD 2007 is based on NACE Rev.2 - the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community, which was established by the Regulation (EC) No 1893/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006, on statistical classification of economic activities NACE Rev. 2 and amended Council Regulation (EEC) No 3037/90 and some EC regulations on specific statistical domains (O.J. EU L 393/1 of 30.12.2006). PKD 2007 is fully methodologically, conceptually, in the scope and coding system (up to fourth digit) coherent and comparable with the classification NACE Rev. 2. PKD defines groupings according to different types of activities, i.e. sections, divisions, groups, classes and subclasses.

The classification includes the following 21 sections:

A — Agriculture, forestry and fishing;

B — Mining and quarrying;

C — Manufacturing;

D — Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply;

E — Water supply; sewerage, waste management and remediation activities;
