Class Code: 9505
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 9505 is applied to insureds engaged primarily in the painting or repainting of automobile or carriage bodies. The operations contemplate sanding, masking, spray painting and baking. The classification includes incidental body repair in the sense that dents that are hammered out or rust spots that are removed are considered to be normal operations preparatory to painting.
Specialist contractors engaged in the application of undercoating to automobiles utilizing either modified spray painting equipment or hand brushes have been assigned by analogy to Code 9505 as well as specialists engaged in painting pinstriping or other designs or artwork on automobile bodies. Refer to Code 9522 for insureds engaged in the business of affixing striping tape to vehicle bodies.
Code 9505 also is applied to insureds engaged in painting conducted in conjunction with automobile, bus, truck or trailer body manufacturing or painting of bus, truck or trailer bodies that have been repaired by the body manufacturing plants. The operations involve sanding, masking, spray painting and baking that are performed in areas that are physically separated with no interchange of labor between the painting and body manufacturing or bus, truck or trailer repair operations.
