ANZSCO, the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations, is the system used to categorize all available job positions in Australia and New Zealand. Each occupation is assigned a unique six-digit ANZSCO code based on the required skills for that particular job. When submitting a Competency Demonstration Report (CDR) for immigration purposes, verifying the ANZSCO code associated with your occupation is crucial to ensure you are nominated for the appropriate visa.
At CDR Writer Australia, we are available to assist with any queries or uncertainties regarding ANZSCO codes. To accurately complete your Workplace Profile, indicate your occupation's assigned ANZSCO group code in the "Occupational Category" field. Additionally, when preparing a CDR Report, it is essential to reference the relevant ANZSCO code. You can search ANZSCO code to identify your occupation's code conveniently.

How to Select ANZSCO Code?
There are certain things to keep in mind while choosing your ANZSCO Code. They are:
1. Know Your Field
To choose the correct ANZSCO code, you need to know the type of engineering work you will be doing. Australia has a range of engineering specializations, including mechanical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, etc.
2. Be aware of the options available
For example, if the candidate does not meet the minimum requirements for Engineering Manager Occupational Category, they should apply as a Professional Engineer.
3. Review the ANZSCO codes for engineering occupations
ANZSCO provides a list of codes for different engineering occupations. You can find the complete list of ANZSCO codes on the Australian Bureau of Statistics website.
4. Match your job duties to the ANZSCO codes
Look at the job duties for each ANZSCO code and see if they match the work you will be doing. For more clarification, consult a migration agent or a professional association for guidance.

ANZSCO Classification and Its Structure
The structure of ANZSCO has five levels:
- Major Group
- Sub-major Group
- Minor Group
- Unit group
At the most detailed level, fields are grouped to form 'unit groups,' which are then grouped into 'minor groups.' These minor groups are further aggregated to form 'sub-major groups,' which are then grouped at the highest level to form 'major groups'.
It is important to note that ANZSCO excludes occupations wholly illegal in New Zealand and all States and Territories of Australia. This means these illegal occupations are prohibited in the ANZSCO unit group. However, ANZSCO does not prevent the description of such activities.
ANZSCO for Engineers and their Official Occupation Lists
ANZSCO codes for engineers are generally included in the Skilled Occupation Lists of Australia. There are two main lists that categorise occupations for skilled migration purposes:
1. Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL):
The MLTSSL List includes occupations that are considered in high demand and have a long-term need in Australia. Engineers with ANZSCO codes typically fall under this list.
2. Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL):
This list includes occupations that have a short-term demand in Australia. Some engineering occupations may also be included in this list, but it is more common for them to be on the MLTSSL.
It's important to note that these occupation lists are subject to change and are periodically reviewed and updated by the Australian government. Therefore, it's recommended to refer to the latest version of the occupation lists provided by the Department of Home Affairs or consult with a registered migration agent to ensure accurate and up-to-date information regarding specific engineering occupations and their ANZSCO codes.
