Extra-Territorial Classification Guidelines:
The following material was developed by NCCI to be used as a guide by auditors and underwriters in the determination of premium for contracting (construction risks) with extra-territorial employments where no company guidelines have been established for this purpose. Construction classifications are indicated by the addition of a construction code symbol ( • ) next to the classification code number.
When a portion of the operations of a risk is insured in a monopolistic state fund, consider the special rules and requirements that may exist in such cases.
