According to Law 2014-626 of 18 June 2014 (Article 9) which amends section L145-34 of Commercial Code, two indices can be used for the revision of commercial and other tertiary activities rents:

- the commercial rent index for commercial and craft activities;

- the tertiary activities rent index for activities other than commercial and craft activities.

The CCI is no longer proposed for revising commercial rent contracts.
