Colour code assessment approach by APEC

APEC is still studying the methodology for data quality assessment. A review of the next 6 to 8 months of M-2 or M-3 data submissions will be carried out to determine the applicability of using these updated data in assessing the quality of M-1 or M-2 submissions from non-OECD APEC economies.

Therefore, data from all APEC economies will not be assessed for the time being until the methodology has been found to be applicable.
