13 CFR Part 121

RIN 3245-AG47

Small Business Size Standards; Manufacturing; Correction

AGENCY: U.S. Small Business Administration.

ACTION: Correcting amendment.


SUMMARY: This document corrects an error in the U.S. Small Business 
Administration's (SBA) interim final rule that appeared in the Federal 
Register, which adopted North American Industry Classification System 
2012 (NAICS 2012) for small business size standards. This document also 
removes the entry for NAICS 315192 in its entirety. These corrections 
do not affect small business size standards.

DATES: Effective November 27, 2013, and applicable beginning October 1, 

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Khem Sharma, Chief, Office of Size 
Standards, U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20416.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This correction removes an errant 
typographical character, which inadvertently appeared before the NAICS 
339910 entry in the table in Sec.  121.201. This document also removes 
the entry for NAICS 315192 in its entirety. These corrections do not 
affect small business size standards.
    In FR Doc. 2012-19973 appearing on page 49991 of the August 20, 
2012 issue of the Federal Register, a correction is necessary on page 
50011. Specifically, it is necessary to remove the less-than-or-equal-
to (<=) symbol that precedes NAICS 339910 that was not included in 
SBA's submission for publication. This document removes the unintended 
character that derived from a coding error in the publication process.
    In addition, the entry for NAICS 315192, Underwear and Nightwear 
Knitting Mills, should be deleted from the CFR. On page 49994 of the 
August 20, 2012 issue of the Federal Register, Table 2 indicates that 
NAICS 315192 was consolidated with another industry to create a new 
one, namely NAICS 315190, Other Apparel Knitting Mills. That is, under 
NAICS 2012, NAICS 315192 is no longer a valid industry. In addition, on 
page 50008, the rule states ``y. remove . . . 315192 . . .'' The 
revised table, ``Small Business Size Standards by NAICS Industry'' 
correctly includes NAICS 315190. However, NAICS 315192 was not removed 
from the table.

Need for Correction

    The purpose of this action is to correct the CFR by removing an 
erroneous character from the entry for NAICS 339910.
    This correction also removes the entire entry for NAICS 315192 from 
the ``Small Business Size Standards by NAICS Industry'' (13 CFR 
121.201), because the industry does not exist in NAICS 2012. The 
activities that NAICS 2007 had included in NAICS 315192 are now in 
NAICS 315190.
