The NAICS module is accessed by opening the Members folder in the “Module Explorer,” expanding the Value Tables folder and selecting the NAICS module.

The North American Industry Classification System, commonly referred to as the NAICS, was developed by the U.S. government and is maintained by the U.S. Department of Commerce. It is a classification system that divides virtually all economic activity into ten major divisions, and each division is further divided into more detailed descriptions. The NAICS is the most frequently used system for presenting economic demographics about the nation. CC-Assist comes with the NAICS codes already set up with these classifications.

You can code a Member with up to three different NAICS codes. Thus, if desired, a member can fall under more than one classification in an NAICS classified listing.

NOTE: NAICS codes are for a different purpose than the Business Categories. NAICS codes are standardized; therefore, you should not modify them. They are generally used for marketing surveys, and consist of thousands of classifications describing economic activity at a very detailed level. As such, NAICS codes are not appropriate for producing a business classified directory. The Business Categories are for that purpose.
