Class Code: 2362

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 2362 is applied to employers engaged in the fabrication of knit cloth and the subsequent manufacture of wearing apparel from this cloth. The classification also covers employers engaged in the manufacture of knitted gloves and mittens. Cotton, wool, silk or synthetic yarn or thread, buttons or other fasteners are received from outside sources. The knit cloth is produced on looms either mechanically or electronically controlled. Also, circular or flat knitting machines are utilized. The finished knitted cloth comes off the loom in large bolts, which are inspected. Some bolts may be shipped to customers. Others, along with fabric from the knitting machines, are cut to pattern and sewn into knit wearing apparel which is inspected and packaged for shipment. To produce gloves or mittens, yarns are knit on special automatic machines to basic shapes. Tips of fingers are sewed closed and the product is turned right side out and final shape is given on steam or electrically heated forms. The gloves and mittens are then inspected, paired and packed for shipment.

Certain Code 2362 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations apply to an employer only when no other classification more specifically describes the employer’s operations.
