New codebook of occupations

After 28 years, Serbia has adopted a new Codebook of occupations, which includes jobs that have emerged in the labor market in the last three decades. The Unique Nomenclature of Occupations from 1990 has been in use so far.

By the end of 2019, employers are under an obligation to update their employee data according to the new Codebook of occupations. As of January 1, 2020, only a new codebook covering 3,641 occupations will be used, and the list is aligned with the needs of the economy and labor market in Serbia, as well as with the international standard.
