Apply for a Manufacturing NAICS Code

Let everyone know that you are an Oregon manufacturer! NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) is a code system that classifies your business by industry.

NAICS codes are used by local, state and federal entities for statistical purposes as well as for non-statistical reasons that can benefit you:

•Tax incentives that are industry specific
•Often required for commercial loans
•Savings on worker’s compensation premiums
•Taxation codes
•Procurement
•Insurance benefits
