The General Classification of Economic Activities (NOGA) is a nomenclature that groups all economic activities that can be carried out in a classification with 794 positions at its last level.
From a statistical point of view, the NOGA makes it possible to classify companies according to their main activity and to group them into coherent units. It is thus used as a basis for many economic statistics.
From an administrative point of view, insurance companies, employment agencies, pension funds, etc. use NOGA codes on their own
initiative. For example, to determine their risk premiums. This use can be
explained by the neutral and objective assignment of the NOGA.
Nevertheless, the NOGA was designed for statistical purposes and is not directly linked to any legal basis. Therefore, the use of the NOGA in a non-statistical context is not the responsibility of the FSO.
