I think confusion will be to the fore when potential applicants attempt to see how a prior ASCO classification matches up to the new ANZSCO ones and it is really something that needs to be left behind, water under the bridge let us say.

The ANZSCO classifications are the new standard for all occupations and so it'll be those classifications which applicants need to be assessed against by ACS.
I haven't had a look to see if ACS have anything on their site re transition from ASCO to ANZSCO but I would not be surprised if ACS have a process for applicants who have had a recent positive ASCO assessment and also have the additional requirements for a successful ANZSCO assessment.

well ACS has to put that in order anyways. im sure they will according to their proffessionalism. anyways the current IT occupation in new SOL will cause many confusions as it already has...
the state migration plans hopefully would bring some light into the situation which ofcourse depend on what occupations they will have in their eligibility list. but the criteria for IT is quite less compared to old SOL... as theres only ICT business analyst, systems analyst, analyst programmer, developer programmer and software engineers.

any news that involves IT occupations please update this thread to help others in confusion!

thank you

The State Migration Plans will also be based on ANZSCO for whatever occupations will be listed, the ANZSCO being a new approach developed re occupation classifications regardless of immigration, States or even ACS.
I would expect that it would have been developed to align more with international standards.
