The source writes:

The producer price indices are short-term indicators that show monthly price changes in the economical activities sector. They can be an indicator of inflationary pressure in economy but also allow measuring the evolution of prices over longer periods.

Data are collected and published by Statistics Belgium. Results available one month after the reference period.
