Class Code: 6213
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 6213 applies to risks engaged in leasing specialty tools and equipment used by drilling contractors. These tools are usually leased with supervisory personnel. The drilling contractor normally provides the operating crew for this equipment. Risks providing complete operating crews along with the specialty tools and equipment are separately classified as to Code 6235.
Testing or inspection of oil or gas pipes not performed in conjunction with the construction of the pipeline is properly classified to Code 8720.
Equipment and Materials:
Typical kinds of equipment leased by these insureds include, but are not limited to, hydraulic power units, swab rigs, wireline units, cementing manifolds, weights/pipe collars, baskets, beams, elevators, flanges, scrapers, and pumps.
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 are insured in a monopolistic state fund, consider the special rules and requirements that may exist in such cases.
Related Operations Not Classified to Code 6213:
Refer to Code 6233 for testing or inspection of oil or gas pipes performed in conjunction with the construction of these pipelines.
