I am analyzing UK government company registry (CompaniesHouse) data. In UK you have SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) codes that help define what industry sector a company operates in. I am aware of North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) that seems to operate similarly. Is there any mapping between the two? What do other countries do?

The page also contains mappings between different versions of NAICS. Thus, one could construct mappings between SIC 1987 and recent versions of NAICS.
