Class Code: 9522

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 9522 is applicable to insureds engaged in the business of upholstering. The classification is available for a division of payroll with other manual classifications if the insured engages in other operations that qualify as separate undertakings or enterprises per Rule 1-D-3 of the Basic Manual.

The separate undertaking or enterprise rule is not applicable to operations involving coffin or casket manufacturing, automobile body manufacturing or furniture manufacturing. Code 9522 may be assigned as an additional classification to the upholstering operations of an insured engaged in these operations provided proper payroll records are maintained.

This classification is assigned to the installation of automobile trim molding, striping tape and door edge guards.

It is also assigned to insureds engaged in the manufacture of furniture made entirely from foam rubber with cloth covering.

Refer to Code 9521 for upholstering operations away from shop that are incidental to and performed in conjunction with house furnishings installations. Slipcover and drapery manufacturing is assigned to Code 2501—Furnishing Goods Manufacturing NOC.

The cross-reference phraseology “burial garment manufacturing” would have application only if the manufacture of burial garments were incidental operations of an insured principally engaged in casket or coffin upholstering. The insured whose principal operations were the manufacture of burial garments would properly be assigned to Code 2501—Clothing Manufacturing.

Code 2501 is applicable to the manufacture of automobile seat covers and convertible tops. In the event an insured engages in upholstering operations along with the manufacture of tops and/or seat covers, Basic Manual rules as described above that are applicable to the assignment of more than one classification to a risk will apply.
