Class Code: 9015

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 9015 applies to owners, lessee, or real estate management firms that operate office, apartment, tenement, mercantile, or industrial buildings. It encompasses all superintendents, custodial operations, and maintenance operations conducted by an owner or lessee of a building except those performed by an employer occupying the entire or a major portion of the building for manufacturing, mercantile, or other commercial purposes.

Camp operations included in Code 9015 provide overnight accommodations and offer a wide range of activities such as swimming, boating, archery, fishing, hiking, and arts and crafts; sports such as tennis and softball; and other traditional camping activities. These camps may employ counselors, cooks, grounds and maintenance personnel, nurses, housekeepers, guards, and lifeguards. Due to the varied nature of activities that take place in these camps, no one classification describes their operations. As such, these camps are assigned to the not otherwise classified (NOC) classification, Code 9015.

Analogy Assignments:

•    Real estate management companies and real estate investment trusts.
•    Code 9015 applies to summer camps operated by schools, provided that the summer camp offers overnight sleeping accommodations.
•    Renting self-storage or warehouse units in which the employer’s operation consists of building management or maintenance is classified to Code 9015. This includes self-storage parking of boats, motor homes, and other recreational vehicles. Employers that operate facilities of this nature are not in the warehousing business because they do not store goods for others; therefore, warehousing codes are not assigned to these employers.
•    “Flea market” or “swap meet” operations in which the owner of the premises rents space to vendors are included in Code 9015.

Additional Applications and Information:

The following operations are included in Code 9015: night watchguards; elevator operators and starters; doormen; gatekeepers; concierges; Boy and Girl Scout councils’ overnight camps; building maintenance and repair by real estate managing agents; condominiums, cooperatives, or time-shares; recreational vehicle campgrounds or parks; public swimming pools; and mobile home or trailer parks.

Special Conditions:

Code 9015 applies to building maintenance employees of employers whose principal business is classified to a Standard Exception classification such as Code 8810—Clerical.

Maintenance employees of these mercantile, manufacturing or other commercial operations are assigned to the governing classification in accordance with the General Inclusion rule in NCCI’s Basic Manual.

The ordinary maintenance and repair of a building operated on behalf of the owner by a real estate managing agent when performed by regular employees of the real estate managing agent must be assigned to Code 9015. Any such work performed by persons temporarily employed by the agent, extraordinary maintenance or repairs, and new construction or erection work, whether performed by regular or by temporary employees, must be assigned to the appropriate construction or erection classification. Code 9015 is not intended for a contractor such as a painter, plumber, electrician, carpenter, or “handyperson.” These employers must be assigned to the appropriate construction classifications.

Employers that operate “camps” that specialize in one activity are classified to the specialty classification representing the employer’s activity. For example, riding academies (riding camps) are classified to Code 8279. Snow skiing facilities (skiing camps) are classified to Code 9180.

Child care centers that have late or overnight operating hours are classified to Code 8869.

Apartment or residential complexes known as retirement living centers (RLCs) are classified to Codes 8824 and 8826. These types of facilities offer a continuum of healthcare services. The healthcare services offered typically include congregate, personal, and nursing or medical care services. Personal care services, sometimes referred to as assisted living care, include assistance with daily living activities such as, but not limited to, ambulation, bathing, and dressing. Nursing or medical care includes physical therapy as well as the administration of drugs, preparations, or medications.

Time-sharing dwellings are residential (vacation) properties shared by various individuals who usually occupy the dwelling at different times during a year. For example, “time-sharers” may agree that Group or Individual “A” will occupy the dwelling or a room or rooms in the dwelling for the month of June; Group or Individual “B” will occupy the dwelling for the month of July, etc. Individuals or groups that share in the dwelling facility may either own the entire property, own a portion of the property, or lease the entire or a portion of the property from others. Time-sharing operations are classified in the same manner as any other dwelling facility. If the property is best described as a hotel, then the appropriate hotel classification(s) are applied; if the property is best described as an apartment house, then the appropriate apartment house classification is applied.
