The ICT-TPE 2012 survey revealed that the survey is not relevant for some units with no economic activity and more often than not with no employees. Thus, the following units are excluded from the area of the survey on the basis of their legal category (LC):
- LUs in the form of non-trading real estate company (CJ='6540').
- LUs in the form of partnerships (SNC -- CJ='5202') and the economic interest groupings (EIG -- CJ='6210' or '6220').
- Associations (CJ='9220') whose turnover at launch is zero or non-existent or whose number of employees is zero or non-existent in the baseline survey.

Other enterprises have been excluded from the scope as irrelevant : those without economical activity identified by their NACE code and with no employee
