Class Code: 8291

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 8291 is applied to insureds engaged in operating cold storage warehouses for other concerns that require storage space with refrigeration services. These cold storage firms have no equity in the products they store. The classification contemplates the maintenance of the warehouse and its equipment, and the receiving, safekeeping and the releasing of the products for shipment.

Code 8291 includes incidental repackaging. It does not include sorting, grading or delivering the products, which are generally taken to and from the warehouse by common carrier, or by the concerns that own the products. If an insured assigned to Code 8291 employs a driver engaged exclusively in pickup or delivery, the driver’s payroll would be separately classified under Code 7380—Drivers NOC.

Freezing and storing of meats, fruits or vegetables for other than private individuals is assigned to Code 8291. Freezing and storing of meats, fruits or vegetables for private individuals is assigned to Code 8031—Cold Storage Locker Operation—Frozen Foods.
