OMB Seeking Comments on Proposed 2017 NAICS Changes

The Office of Management and Budget is requesting comments on the Economic Classification Policy Committee’s Recommendations for the 2017 Revision of the North American Industry Classification System.

The proposed revisions focus on improving the description of current industries, identifying new and emerging industries, and recommending changes to industry content based on research and implementation experience.

The ECPC’s recommended revisions include industry title changes that more clearly describe the existing content of industries and content revisions. Tables in OMB’s notice show the disposition of all affected industries and their resulting relationship to NAICS United States 2017 proposed industries, as well as a cross-walk between the existing 2012 NAICS content and the proposed NAICS 2017 order.

Comments on the proposed changes must be submitted by October 5, 2015.

For the text of the notice, see the OMB notice.
