COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2017/542

of 22 March 2017

amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures by adding an Annex on harmonised information relating to emergency health response

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, amending and repealing Directives 67/548/EEC and 1999/45/EC, and amending Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (1), and in particular Article 45(4) and 53(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In order to carry out their responsibilities, bodies appointed in accordance with Article 45(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 need information about mixtures placed on the market and classified as hazardous on the basis of their health and physical effects. That information is submitted to appointed bodies at national level by importers and downstream users and it commonly includes product identification, hazard identification, composition information and toxicological information. Poison centres rely on information provided by those appointed bodies, and sometimes constitute such bodies themselves.

(2)

The Commission carried out the review provided for by Article 45(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, and its findings, which were based on thorough expert consultation, were published in January 2012. The review concluded that there is considerable variation in the current notification systems, data formats and country-specific requirements regarding the requested information in the Member States. This implies that importers and downstream users placing mixtures on the market in different Member States, need to provide multiple submissions and in different formats, regarding information that is often similar. The review also showed that this diversity leads to inconsistencies in the information available to medical personnel and the general public in cases of poisoning incidents in different Member States.

(3)

The findings of the review were supported by a Commission costs and benefits study completed in March 2015 (2), which confirmed that, in addition to improved health response, the harmonisation of information to be provided to appointed bodies would lead overall to significant cost savings.

(4)

The relevant stakeholders, such as the European Association of Poison Centres and Clinical Toxicologists (EAPCCT) have been consulted, in particular in the framework of the costs and benefits study and through a number of workshops.

(5)

It is therefore appropriate to harmonise the information to be received by appointed bodies from importers and downstream users, as well as to establish a format for the submission of the information.

(6)

It is necessary to specify which information needs to be submitted to an appointed body. This includes information regarding the identification of the mixture and of the submitter, the hazard identification and the mixture components. Due to the fact that mixtures' formulations can be subject to frequent slight modifications with little or no impact on the emergency health response to be provided, requiring information about the components of the mixture in exact percentages would be disproportionate. Therefore, as an alternative, concentration ranges may be submitted for mixture components. The width of those ranges should be determined on the basis of the health and physical effects of the mixture components and the relevance of the information for emergency health response.

(7)

In view of the fact that mixtures classified as hazardous may also contain non-classified components that can nonetheless have adverse effects after unintended use (e.g. following ingestion), appointed bodies should have at their disposal information on the latter components where needed to formulate preventive or curative action.

(8)

The format for the submission of the information should be harmonised in order to allow importers and downstream users operating in different Member States to use the same submission or submission format in different Member States. The submissions should be made electronically in a harmonised XML format maintained by the European Chemicals Agency and made available free of charge.

(9)

In order to facilitate the transmission of information on the intended use of a mixture and to support the statistical analysis of related poisoning cases, a European product categorisation system should be developed by the European Chemicals Agency and used in the submission of information.

(10)

According to a Commission costs and benefits study, poison centres and other appointed bodies have reported experiencing problems with the correct identification of the mixture concerned in up to 40 % of the calls they receive. This could lead to unnecessary overtreatment of patients and hospitalisation for precautionary reasons. Therefore, as part of the harmonisation of the information, it is necessary to require identification of a mixture by a unique alphanumeric code (unique formula identifier) to be affixed to the label.

(11)

Most calls to poison centres and other appointed bodies concern accidental exposure to hazardous mixtures used by consumers and to a lesser extent by professionals. Only a small number of calls concern mixtures for industrial use, which are used in industrial installations. In addition, on industrial sites there usually is a greater knowledge of the mixtures used and medical treatment is generally available. Therefore, importers and downstream users of mixtures for industrial use should be allowed to fulfil limited information requirements.

(12)

In order to spread the necessary work of adapting the format for data submission, and to prioritise information provision where it is most needed, it is considered reasonable and proportionate to lay down a stepwise applicability of the new information requirements set by this Regulation according to the use of the mixture.

(13)

In order to ensure a smooth transition and avoid disproportionate costs, the submissions provided to appointed bodies before the date of application of this Regulation should remain valid for a certain time after this Regulation starts to apply. However, if significant changes in the formulation, product identifier or toxicology of the mixture occur in the meantime, a submission update pursuant to this Regulation should be required.

(14)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 54(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 is amended as follows:

(1)

In Article 25, the following paragraph 7 is added:

‘7.   Where under Annex VIII the submitter creates a unique formula identifier, it shall be included on the label in accordance with the provisions of Section 5 of Part A of that Annex’;

(2)

Annex VIII is added as set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 1 January 2020.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

ANNEX

Technical specifications of the census topics and their breakdowns

The technical specifications are presented as follows:

Each topic is identified by a heading.

The heading of the topic may be followed by technical specifications referring to that topic in general.

Thereafter, the breakdown(s) for the topic is (are) specified. Some topics have more than one breakdown, each with different levels of detail. Where this is the case, ‘H’ identifies breakdowns with the highest level of detail, ‘M’ identifies breakdowns with a medium level of detail, and ‘L’ identifies breakdowns with the lowest level of detail and ‘N’ identifies the breakdown that refers to the national level.

The totals to which the breakdowns apply are identified. Each breakdown may be followed by further technical specifications that relate specifically to that breakdown.

Topic: Place of usual residence

In applying the definition of ‘usual residence’ given in Article 2(d) of Regulation (EC) No 763/2008, Member States shall treat special cases as follows:

(a)

Where a person regularly lives in more than one residence during the year, the residence where he/she spends the majority of the year shall be taken as his/her place of usual residence regardless of whether this is located elsewhere within the country or abroad. However, a person who works away from home during the week and who returns to the family home at weekends shall consider the family home to be his/her place of usual residence regardless of whether his/her place of work is elsewhere in the country or abroad.

(b)

Primary and secondary school pupils and students who are away from home during the school term and regardless of how often they return to their family home, shall consider their family home to be their place of usual residence (regardless of whether they are pursuing their education elsewhere in the country or abroad).

(c)

Tertiary students who are away from home while at college or university shall consider their term-time address to be their place of usual residence regardless of whether this is an institution (such as a boarding school) or a private residence and regardless of whether they are pursuing their education elsewhere in the country or abroad. Exceptionally, where the place of education is within the country, the place of usual residence may be considered to be the family home.

(d)

An institution shall be taken as the place of usual residence of all its residents who at the time of the census have spent, or are likely to spend, 12 months or more living there.

(e)

The general rule in relation to where most of the daily period of rest is spent applies to persons doing compulsory military service and to members of the armed forces who live in military barracks or camps.

(f)

The place of enumeration shall be taken as the place of usual residence of homeless or roofless persons, nomads, vagrants and persons with no concept of usual residence.

(g)

A child who alternates between two places of residence (for instance if his or her parents are divorced) shall consider the one where he or she spends the majority of the time as his or her place of usual residence. Where an equal amount of time is spent with both parents the place of usual residence shall be the one where the child is found at the time on census night or, alternatively, the household where the child has his or her legal or registered residence.

(h)

Merchant seamen and fishermen usually resident in the country but at sea at the time of the census (including those who have no place of residence other than their quarters aboard ship) shall be included.

(i)

Persons who may be irregularly staying or undocumented, as well as asylum seekers and persons who have applied for, or been granted, refugee status or similar types of international protections, provided that they meet the criteria for the usual residence in the country shall be included. The intention is not to distinguish these persons separately, but rather to ensure that they are not missed from the enumeration.

(j)

Children born in the 12 months before the census reference time and whose families are usually resident in the country at the census reference time shall be included.

(k)

Persons whose stay in the country (actual and/or intended) is exactly one year shall be included.

Military, naval and diplomatic personnel and their families

(l)

Foreign military, naval and diplomatic personnel and their families, located in the country, regardless of their duration of stay shall be excluded from the usually resident population of a country.

(m)

Where the duration of residence outside of the country can be established for national military, naval and diplomatic service personnel and their families located outside the country, the following shall be applied:

if they are residing abroad for less than 12 months and they are intending to return to the place of departure they shall be allocated within the country in accordance with the rules for usual residence. In particular, they could be allocated to (by decreasing order of priority):

(i)

the family home address within the country, if any, or

(ii)

the duty station within the country to which they were attached before leaving.

If they are residing abroad for at least 12 months or if they are not intending to return to the place of departure (although returning in the country within a 12-month period), they shall be attributed to a ‘virtual place’ (extra-region) of the country of departure.

On the basis of the definition of the place of usual residence, persons usually resident in the place of enumeration but absent, or expected to be absent, at the time of the census for less than one year shall be considered as temporarily absent persons and thus included in the total population. In contrast, persons living or expected to live outside the place of enumeration for one year or more shall not be considered temporarily absent and shall therefore be excluded from the total population. This is regardless of the length of visits that they may pay to their families from time to time.

Persons who are enumerated but do not meet the criteria for usual residence in the place of enumeration, i.e. do not live or do not expect to live in the place of enumeration for a continuous period of at least 12 months, are considered temporarily present and are therefore not counted in the total usual resident population.

The breakdowns for ‘Geographical area’ are designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons (Place of usual residence). They can also be used to regionally break down any total to which neither the topic ‘Place of usual residence’ nor ‘Location of place of work’ applies.

For the breakdowns for ‘Geographical area’ the versions of the classification of territorial units for statistics (NUTS (2)) and of the classification for Local Administrative Units (LAU) valid on 1 January 2021 shall be used.

Topic: Location of place of work

The location of the place of work is the geographical area in which a currently employed person does his/her job.

The place of work of those mostly working at home is the same as their usual residence. The term ‘working’ refers to work done as an ‘employed person’ as defined under the topic ‘Current activity status’. ‘Mostly’ working at home means that the person spends all or most of the time working at home, and less, or no, time in a place of work other than at home.

For the breakdowns for ‘Location of place of work’ the version of the classification of territorial units for statistics (NUTS) valid on 1 January 2021 shall be used.

Information on persons who do not have a fixed place of work but who report to a fixed address at the beginning of their work period (for example bus drivers, airline crew, operators of street market stalls that are not removed at the end of the workday) should refer to that address. This group may also include individuals who travel to work, on a regular basis, across the border to a neighbouring country. Breakdown ‘No fixed place of work (inside or outside the Member State)’ includes all persons without fixed place of work but will also refer to persons such as sailors, fishermen and offshore workers for whom it may not be possible to allocate the place of work.

The breakdowns for ‘Location of place of work’ are designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

Topic: Locality

A locality is defined as a distinct population cluster, that is an area defined by population living in neighbouring or contiguous buildings. Such buildings may either:

(a)

form a continuous built-up area with a clearly recognisable street formation; or

(b)

though not part of such a built-up area, comprise a group of buildings to which a locally recognized place name is uniquely attached; or

(c)

though not meeting either of the above two criteria, constitute a group of buildings, none of which is separated from its nearest neighbour by more than 200 meters.

In applying this definition, certain land-use categories shall not be regarded as breaking the continuity of a built-up area. These categories include: industrial and commercial buildings and facilities, public parks, playgrounds and gardens, football fields and other sports facilities, bridged rivers, railway lines, canals, parking lots and other transport infrastructure, churchyards and cemeteries.

LAU 2 regions with a total population of less than 2 000 can be assumed to be one locality.

Population of a locality is defined as persons having their usual residence in that locality.

A scattered building is to be allocated to the category that represents the number of persons that have their usual residence in the building.

The breakdowns for ‘Age’ are designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

Topic: Legal Marital Status

Marital status is defined as the (legal) conjugal status of an individual in relation to the marriage laws (or customs) of the country (that is the de jure status).

A person shall be classified according to his/her most recently acquired legal marital status at the reference date.

In Member States where the legislation includes provisions for married partners or partners in registered partnership to be ‘legally separated’, such ‘legally separated’ persons shall be classified under ‘Married or in registered partnership’ (LMS.L. 2. and LMS.H. 2.).

The breakdown ‘Legal marital status’ is designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

Topic: Current activity status

‘Current activity status’ is the current relationship of a person to economic activity, based on a reference period of one week, which may be either a specified, recent, fixed, calendar week, or the last complete calendar week, or the last seven days prior to enumeration.

The ‘labour force’ comprises all persons who fulfil the requirements for inclusion among the employed or the unemployed.

Employed’ persons comprise all persons aged 15 years or over who during the reference week:

(a)

performed at least one hour of work for pay or profit, in cash or in kind, or

(b)

were temporarily absent from a job in which they had already worked and to which they maintained a formal attachment, or from a self-employment activity.

Employees temporarily not at work shall be considered as in paid employment provided they had a formal job attachment. The possible reasons for such temporary absences are:

(a)

illness or injury; or

(b)

holiday or vacation; or

(c)

strike or lock-out; or

(d)

educational or training leave; or

(e)

maternity or parental leave; or

(f)

reduction in economic activity; or

(g)

temporary disorganization or suspension of work due to such reasons as bad weather, mechanical or electrical breakdown, or shortage of raw materials or fuels; or

(h)

other temporary absence with or without leave.

The formal job attachment shall be determined on the basis of one or more of the following criteria:

(a)

a continued receipt of wage or salary; or

(b)

an assurance of return to work following the end of the contingency, or an agreement as to the date of return; or

(c)

the elapsed duration of absence from the job which, wherever relevant, may be that duration for which workers can receive compensation benefits without obligations to accept other jobs.

Self-employed persons shall be considered as ‘employed’ if they have worked as such during the reference week or if they are temporarily absent from work and their enterprise meanwhile continues to exist.

Contributing family workers shall be considered to be ‘employed’ at work on the same basis as other employed persons; that is irrespective of the number of hours worked during the reference period. Similarly, persons who perform tasks or duties of an employee job held by a family member living in the same, or in another, household shall also be classified as employed.

The ‘unemployed’ comprise all persons aged 15 years or over who were:

(a)

‘without work’, that is, were not in wage employment or self-employment during the reference week; and

(b)

‘currently available for work’, that is, were available for wage employment or self-employment during the reference week and for two weeks after that; and

(c)

‘seeking work’, that is, had taken specific steps to seek wage employment or self-employment within four weeks ending with the reference week.

The ‘Others’ comprise persons outside of the labour force who are receiving public aid or private support, and all other persons not falling into any of the above categories.

In ascribing a single activity status to each person, priority shall be given to the status of ‘Employed’ in preference to ‘Unemployed’, and to the status of ‘Unemployed’ in preference to ‘Outside of the labour force’.

In ascribing a single activity status to each person currently outside of the labour force, priority shall be given to the status of ‘Persons below the national minimum age for economic activity’ in preference to ‘Pension or capital income recipients’, to the status of ‘Pension or capital income recipients’ in preference to ‘Students’, and of ‘Students’ in preference to ‘Others’.

The category ‘Students’ (CAS.H.2.3.) shall thus comprise secondary and tertiary students who:

have attained the national minimum age for economic activity or above, and

are outside of the labour force, and

are not recipients of a pension or of capital income..

The breakdowns for ‘Current activity status’ are designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

Topic: Occupation

‘Occupation’ refers to the type of work done in a job. ‘Type of work’ is described by the main tasks and duties of the work.

The allocation of a person within the breakdowns of the topics ‘Occupation’, ‘Industry’ and ‘Status in employment’ shall be based on the same job. Persons doing more than one job shall be allocated an occupation based on their main job, which is to be identified according to:

(1)

the time spent on the job or, if not available,

(2)

the income received.

Persons aged 15 or over that were employed (i.e. had the ‘Current activity status — CAS of “Employed”’ (CAS.L. and CAS.H. 1.1)) during the reference week shall be classified under only one category of OCC.1. to OCC.11.

Persons under the age of 15 years, as well as persons aged 15 or over that were:

unemployed during the reference week (‘Current activity status — “Unemployed”’ (CAS.L. 1.2)) or that were

outside of the labour force (‘Current activity status — “outside of the labour force”’ (CAS.L. and CAS.H.2.)) shall be classified under ‘Not applicable’ (OCC.12.).

If the denomination of categories of the ISCO classification in force on 1 January 2021 deviates from that listed in the categories OCC.2. to OCC.11., the denomination of the ISCO classification in force on 1 January 2021 shall be used.

The breakdown ‘Occupation’ is designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

Topic: Industry

Industry (branch of economic activity) refers to the kind of production or activity of the establishment or similar unit in which the job of an employed person is located. For persons who are recruited and employed by one enterprise but who actually have their place of work in another enterprise (‘agency workers’, ‘seconded workers’) the industry (branch of economic activity) of the establishment or similar unit where the place of work actually is shall be reported.

The allocation of a person within the breakdowns of the topics ‘Occupation’, ‘Industry’ and ‘Status in employment’ shall be based on the same job. Persons doing more than one job shall be allocated an industry (branch of economic activity) based on their main job which is to be identified according to:

the time spent on the job or, if not available,

the income received.

Persons aged 15 or over that were employed (i.e. had the ‘Current activity status — CAS’ of ‘employed’ (CAS.L. and CAS.H. 1.1)) during the reference week shall be classified under only one category of IND.1. to IND.11.

Persons under the age of 15 years, as well as persons aged 15 or over that were:

unemployed during the reference week (‘Current activity status — “unemployed”’ (CAS.L. and CAS.H.1.2)) or that were

outside of the labour force (‘Current activity status — “outside of the labour force”’ (CAS.L. and CAS.H.2.)) shall be classified under ‘Not applicable’ (IND.12.).

The breakdown ‘Industry (branch of economic activity)’ is designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

Topic: Status in employment

An ‘employee’ is a person who works in a ‘paid employment’ job, that is a job where the explicit or implicit contract of employment gives the incumbent a basic remuneration, which is independent of the revenue of the unit for which he/she works (this unit may be a corporation, a non-profit institution, government unit or a household). Persons in ‘paid employment’ jobs are typically remunerated by wages and salaries, but may be paid by commission from sales, by piece rates, bonuses or in-kind payment such as food, housing or training. Some or all of the tools, capital equipment, information systems and/or premises used by the incumbent may be owned by others, and the incumbent may work under direct supervision of, or according to strict guidelines set by, the owner(s) or persons in the owner's employment.

An ‘employer’ is a person who, working on his or her own account or with a small number of partners, holds a ‘self-employment’ job and, in this capacity, on a continuous basis (including the reference week) has engaged one or more persons to work for him/her as ‘employees’. The incumbent makes the operational decisions affecting the enterprise, or delegates such decisions while retaining responsibility for the welfare of the enterprise.

If a person is both employer and employee, he/she shall be allocated to only one group according to:

the time spent on the job or, if not available,

the income received.

An ‘own-account worker’ is a person who, working on his/her own account or with one or a few partners, holds a ‘self-employment job’ and has not engaged, on a continuous basis (including the reference week), any ‘employees’.

‘Other employed persons’ includes persons who are ‘contributing family workers’ and ‘members of producers’ cooperatives'.

A ‘contributing family worker’ is a person who

holds a ‘self-employment’ job in a market-oriented establishment operated by a related person, living in the same household, and

cannot be regarded as a partner (that is an employer or own-account worker) because the degree of commitment to the operation of the establishment, in terms of working time or other factors to be determined by national circumstances, is not at a level comparable to that of the head of the establishment.

A ‘member of a producers’ cooperative' is a person who holds a ‘self-employment’ job in an establishment organised as a cooperative, in which each member takes part on an equal footing with other members in determining the organisation of production, sales and/or other work, the investments and the distribution of the proceeds among the members.

The allocation of a person within the breakdowns of the topics ‘Occupation’, ‘Industry’ and ‘Status in employment’ shall be based on the same job. Persons doing more than one job shall be allocated a status in employment based on their main job, which is to be identified according to:

the time spent on the job or, if not available,

the income received.

Persons aged 15 or over that were employed (i.e. had the ‘Current activity status — CAS’ of ‘employed’ (CAS.L. and CAS.H.1.1)) during the reference week shall be classified under only one category of SIE.1. to SIE.5., according to their status in employment.

Persons under the age of 15 years, as well as persons aged 15 or over that were:

unemployed during the reference week (‘Current activity status — “unemployed”’ (CAS.L.1.2. and CAS.H. 1.2)) or that were

outside of the labour force (‘Current activity status — “outside of the labour force”’ (CAS.L.2. and CAS.H.2.)) shall be classified under ‘Not applicable’ (SIE.6.).

Topic: Educational attainment

Educational attainment refers to the highest level successfully completed in the educational system of the country where the education was received. All education which is relevant to the completion of a level shall be taken into account even if this was provided outside schools and universities.

Persons aged 15 years or over shall be classified under only one of the categories from EDU.1. to EDU.10., according to their educational attainment (highest completed level). Persons under the age of 15 years shall be classified under ‘Not applicable’ (EDU.11.).

EDU.1. refers to persons not having successfully completed ISCED level 1. This includes individuals who: have never attended an education programme; have attended some early childhood education (defined as ISCED level 0 in the classification of education programmes); or have attended some primary education but have not successfully completed ISCED level 1.

If the denomination of categories of the ISCED classification in force on 1 January 2021 deviates from that listed in the categories EDU.2. to EDU.9., the denomination of the ISCED classification in force on 1 January 2021 shall be used.

The breakdowns for ‘Country/place of birth’ are designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

The list of countries in the breakdown ‘Country/place of birth’ shall only apply for statistical purposes.

Topic: Country of citizenship

Citizenship is defined as the particular legal bond between an individual and his/her State, acquired by birth or naturalisation, whether by declaration, option, marriage or other means according to the national legislation.

A person with two or more citizenships shall be allocated to only one country of citizenship, to be determined in the following order of precedence:

1.

reporting country; or

2.

if the person does not have the citizenship of the reporting country: other EU Member State; or

3.

if the person does not have the citizenship of another EU Member State: other country outside the European Union.

Where there are cases of dual citizenship where both countries are within the European Union but neither is the reporting country, Member States shall determine which country of citizenship is to be allocated.

‘EU Member State’ means a country that is a member of the European Union on 1 January 2021.

For reporting countries that are EU Member States, the sub-category of the category ‘Citizenship not of reporting country, but other EU Member State’ (COC.H.2.1.) that refers to their Member State does not apply. For reporting countries that are not EU Member States, the category ‘Citizenship not of reporting country, but other EU Member State’ (COC.L.2.1. COC.M.2.1. COC.H.2.1.) shall be changed to ‘Citizenship of an EU Member State’.

Persons who are neither citizens of any country nor stateless and who have some but not all of the rights and duties associated with citizenship shall be classified under ‘Recognised Non-Citizens’ (COC.H. 2.2.1.20.).

Topic: Previous place of usual residence and date of arrival in the current place; or Place of usual residence one year prior to the census

The relationship between the current place of usual residence and the place of usual residence one year prior to the census shall be reported.

In the breakdown ‘Place of usual residence one year prior to the census’ any change of residence shall refer to the time span between one year prior to the reference date and the reference date. A move within the same LAU2 area shall also be considered as a move within the same NUTS 3 area.

Children under one year of age shall be classified under ‘Not applicable’ (ROY.4.).

Countries collecting information on the topic ‘Previous place of usual residence and date of arrival in the current place’ shall classify all persons that have changed their usual residence more than once within the year prior to the reference date according to their previous place of usual residence, i.e. the place of usual residence from which they moved to their current place of usual residence.

The breakdown ‘Place of usual residence one year prior to the census’ is designed to break down any total or subtotal referring to persons.

Topic: Family status

The family nucleus is defined in a narrow sense; that is as two or more persons who belong to the same household and who are related as husband and wife, as partners in a registered partnership, as partners in a consensual union, or as parent and child. Thus a family comprises a couple without children or a couple with one or more children, or a lone parent with one or more children. This family concept limits relationships between children and adults to direct (first-degree) relationships, that is, between parents and children.

Child (son/daughter) refers to a blood, step- or adopted son or daughter (regardless of age or marital status) who has usual residence in the household of at least one of the parents, and who has no partner or own children in the same household. Foster children shall not be included. A son or daughter who lives with a spouse, with a registered partner, with a partner in a consensual union, or with one or more own children, is not considered to be a child. A child who alternates between two households (for instance if his or her parents are divorced) shall consider the one where he or she spends the majority of the time as his or her household. Where an equal amount of time is spent with both parents the household shall be the one where the child is found at the time of census night or, alternatively, the household where the child has his or her legal or registered residence.

‘Partners’ shall include married couples, couples in registered partnerships, and couples who live in a consensual union. ‘Registered partnership’ is defined as in the technical specifications for the topic ‘Legal marital status’.

Two persons are considered to be partners in a ‘consensual union’ when they

belong to the same household, and

have a marriage-like relationship with each other, and

are not married to or in a registered partnership with each other.

‘Skip-generation households’ (households consisting of a grandparent or grandparents and one or more grandchildren, but no parent of those grandchildren) are not included in the definition of a family.

Topic: Household status

Member States shall apply the ‘housekeeping concept’ to identify private households, or, if not possible, the ‘household-dwelling’ concept.

1.   Housekeeping concept

According to the housekeeping concept, a private household is either:

(a)

A one-person household, that is a person who lives alone in a separate housing unit or who occupies, as a lodger, a separate room (or rooms) of a housing unit but does not join with any of the other occupants of the housing unit to form part of a multiperson household as defined below; or

(b)

A multiperson household, that is a group of two or more persons who combine to occupy the whole or part of a housing unit and to provide themselves with food and possibly other essentials for living. Members of the group may pool their incomes to a greater or lesser extent.

2.   Household-dwelling concept

The household-dwelling concept considers all persons living in a housing unit to be members of the same household, such that there is one household per occupied housing unit. In the household dwelling concept, then, the number of occupied housing units and the number of households occupying them is equal, and the locations of the housing units and households are identical.

The category ‘Persons living in a private household’ comprises ‘Persons in a family nucleus’ (HST.M. and HST.H.1.1.) and ‘Persons not in a family nucleus’ (HST.M. and HST.H. 1.2.). The category ‘Persons in a family nucleus’ comprises all persons who belong to a private household that contains a family nucleus of which they are a member. ‘Persons not in a family nucleus’ comprises all persons who either belong to a non-family household or to a family household without being member of any family nucleus in that household.

A non-family household can be a one-person household (person is ‘Living alone’ (HST.H.1.2.1.)) or a multiperson household without any family nucleus. The category ‘Not living alone’ (HST.H.1.2.2.) comprises persons that live either in a multiperson household without any family nucleus or in a family household without being member of any family nucleus in that household.

An institutional household comprises persons whose need for shelter and subsistence are being provided by an institution. An institution is understood to be a legal body for the purpose of long-term inhabitation and provision of services to a group of persons. Institutions usually have common facilities shared by the occupants (baths, lounges, eating facilities, dormitories and so forth).

‘Homeless persons’ (HST.M. 2.2. and HST.H.2.2.) are persons living in the streets without a shelter that would fall within the scope of living quarters (primary homelessness) or persons moving frequently between temporary accommodation (secondary homelessness).

Topic: Housing arrangements

The topic ‘Housing arrangements’ covers the whole population and refers to the type of housing in which a person usually resides at the time of the census. This covers all persons who are usual residents in different types of living quarters, or who do not have a usual residence and stay temporarily in some type of living quarters, or who are roofless, sleeping rough or in emergency shelters, when the census is taken.

Occupants are persons with their usual residence in the places listed in the respective category.

‘Conventional dwellings’ are structurally separate and independent premises at fixed locations which are designed for permanent human habitation and are, at the reference date,

(a)

used as a residence, or

(b)

vacant, or

(c)

reserved for seasonal or secondary use.

‘Separate’ means surrounded by walls and covered by a roof or ceiling so that one or more persons can isolate themselves. ‘Independent’ means having direct access from a street or a staircase, passage, gallery or grounds.

‘Other housing units’ are huts, cabins, shacks, shanties, caravans, houseboats, barns, mills, caves or any other shelter used for human habitation at the time of the census, irrespective if it was designed for human habitation.

‘Collective living quarters’ are premises which are designed for habitation by large groups of individuals or several households and which are used as the usual residence of at least one person at the time of the census.

‘Occupied conventional dwellings’, other housing units and collective living quarters together represent ‘living quarters’. Any ‘living quarter’ must be the usual residence of at least one person.

The sum of occupied conventional dwellings and other housing units represents ‘housing units’.

The homeless (persons who are not usual residents in any living quarter category) are persons living in the streets without a shelter that would fall within the scope of living quarters (primary homelessness) or persons moving frequently between temporary accommodation (secondary homelessness).
