Class Code: 2923

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 2923 is a product classification that includes fabrication of metal frames, sounding boards, keyboards, wire and string graduation. The term “manufacturing of the piano action,” which is included in Code 2923’s phraseology, refers to the manufacture of the operating parts of a mechanism, in this instance a piano.

Musical Instrument Mfg.—Wood—NOC—contemplates the manufacture of instruments made of wood. Case manufacturing and the tanning of skins used in manufacturing wooden drums, tambourines and banjos have been considered incidental to the operations assigned to Code 2923.

Organ Building and Installation—contemplates the manufacture of the complete organ including installation as well as the manufacture of the keyboards, sounding boards, action boards, metal frames, metal organ pipes, switches, relays, magnets, wind chests, wind reservoirs and blower systems.

Certain Code 2923 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations shall apply to an insured only when no other classification more specifically describes the insured’s operations. The following is a representative list of classifications somewhat related in nature to Code 2923 operations that are not assigned to Code 2923:

3685 Instrument Mfg. NOC (Professional or Scientific)
3383 Musical Instrument Mfg.—Metal—NOC

In addition to this representative list, one should review sources such as the alphabetical index in this manual to determine whether a classification other than Code 2923 or a classification other than one on the above list is applicable to the operations being reviewed for classification purposes.
