18347 1 A Agriculture, hunting and forestry Section A covers the exploitation of vegetable and animal natural resources. The section comprises the activities of growing crops, raising animals, harvesting timber, and harvesting other plants and animals from a farm or their natural habitats.
18348 2 AA A Agriculture, hunting and forestry
18349 3 01 AA Agriculture, hunting and related service activities Division 01 first of all distinguishes two basic activities
• Production of crop products (01.1: Growing of crops...) and
• Production of animal products (01.2: Farming of animals).

Within 01.1 a distinction is made between
• field crops which generally follow a yearly cycle (01.11 and 01.12), such as cereal, vegetable or flower growing
• crops with a long cycle such as plantations (e.g. coffee, cocoa, etc.), vineyards and orchards (01.13).

Within group 01.2 (Farming of animals), the activities are grouped according to the type of animal and not according to the type of product produced (e.g. meat, milk, hide, etc.) and without distinguishing between total confinement (non-grazing) and open range pasture farming.

Group 01.3 (Mixed farming) breaks with the usual principles for identifying main activity. It accepts that many agricultural holdings have reasonably balanced crop and animal production, and that it would be arbitrary to classify them in one category or the other.

Certain operations such as soil preparation, planting, harvesting, and management, which are normally part of farm operation may be carried out by agricultural support units on a fee or contract basis, as agricultural (01.41) or animal husbandry (01.42) service activities.

Agricultural activity excludes any subsequent processing of the agricultural products (classified under division 15: Manufacture of food products, and division 16: Manufacture of tobacco products), beyond that needed to prepare them for the primary markets. However, as an exception to the general rule for classification of integrated activities, a unit processing its own agricultural production on the farm is classified to 01, even though the output normally is the product of division 15 and 16. Examples are
• Growing of grapes and production of wine from these
• Growing of olives and production of olive oil from these.

The division excludes field construction (e.g. agricultural land terracing, drainage, preparing rice paddies, etc.) classified in division 45 (Construction) and buyers and cooperative associations engaged in the marketing of farm products classified in section G (Wholesale and retail trade; ...)

18414 1 D Manufacturing The manufacturing activity is the mechanical, physical or chemical transformation of materials, substances or components into new products. The materials, substances or components transformed are raw materials that are products of agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining or quarrying as well as products of other manufacturing activities.

The units in the manufacturing section are often described as plants, factories or mills and characteristically use power-driven machines and materials-handling equipment. However, units that transform materials or substances into new products by hand or in the worker's home and those engaged in selling to the general public products made on the same premises from which they are sold, such as bakeries and custom tailors, are also included in this section.

Manufacturing units may process materials or may contract with other units to process their materials for them. Both types of units are included in manufacturing.

The new manufactured product may be finished in the sense that it is ready for utilization or consumption, or it may be semi-finished to become an input for further manufacturing. For example the product of the alumina refinery is the input used in the primary production of aluminum; primary aluminum is the input to an aluminum wire drawing plant; and aluminum wire is the input for a manufacture of fabricated wire products.

Assembly of the component parts of manufactured products is considered manufacturing, except in cases where the activity is appropriately classified in any class of division 45 (Construction).

Assembly and installation of machinery and equipment in mining, manufacturing, commercial or other units, when carried out as a specialized activity, is classified in the same class of manufacturing as manufacture of the item installed.

Assembly and installation of machinery and equipment which is performed as a service incidental to the sale of the goods by a unit primarily engaged in manufacturing, wholesale trade or retail trade, is classified with its main activity.

Maintenance and repair of industrial, commercial and similar machinery and equipment is, in general, classified in the same class as the manufacture of the goods.

Substantial alteration, renovation or reconstruction of goods is generally considered to be manufacturing.

Manufacture of specialized components and parts of, and accessories and attachments to, machinery and equipment is, as a general rule, classified in the same class as the manufacture of the machinery and equipment for which the parts and accessories are intended. Manufacture of non-specialized components and parts of machinery and equipment, e.g. engines, pistons, electric motors, electrical assemblies, valves, gears, roller bearings, is classified in the appropriate class of manufacturing, without regard to the machinery and equipment in which these items may be included.

The boundaries of manufacturing and the other sectors of the classification system can be somewhat blurry. The manufacturing activity is engaged in the transformation of materials into new products. The output is a new product. However, the definition of what constitutes a new product can be somewhat subjective. As clarification, the following activities are considered manufacturing in NACE:

– Milk pasteurizing and bottling
– Fresh fish processing (oyster shucking, fish filleting)
– Printing and related activities
– Ready-mixed concrete production
– Leather converting
– Wood preserving
– Electroplating, plating, metal heat treating and polishing
– Fabricating signs and advertising displays
– Rebuilding or remanufacturing machinery (e.g., automobile engines)
– Ship repair and renovation
– Tyre retreading.

Conversely, there are activities that are sometimes considered manufacturing, but which for NACE are classified in another section, (i.e., not classified as manufacturing). They include:

– Logging, classified in section A (Agriculture, Hunting and Forestry)
– Benification of ores and other minerals, classified in section C (Mining)
– The construction of structures and fabricating operations performed at the site of construction classified in section F (Construction)
– The activity of breaking of bulk and redistribution in smaller lots, including packaging, repackaging or bottling of products, such as liquors or chemicals; the customized assembly of computers; sorting of scrap; mixing of paints to customer order; and cutting of metals to customer order, produce a modified version of the same product, not a new product and is classified to section G (Wholesale and Retail Trade).

However, repair of office and computing machinery is classified in class 72.50. Repair of household appliances, equipment and furnishings, motor vehicles and other consumer goods are, as a general rule, classified in the appropriate class of division 50 (Sale, maintenance and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles; retail sale of automotive fuel) or 52 (Retail trade, except of motor vehicles and motorcycles; repair of personal and household goods) in accordance with the kind of goods which are repaired.
18415 2 DA D Manufacture of food products, beverages and tobacco The food industry processes the products of agriculture, animal husbandry and fishing into food and drink for humans or animals, and includes the production of various intermediate products, which are not directly food products. The activity often generates associated products of greater or lesser value (e.g. hides from slaughtering or oilcake from oil production).

Each division is organised by activities dealing with different kinds of products: meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, fats and oils, milk products, grain milling, animal feeds, other food products, beverages, tobacco. Production can be done for own account, as well as for third parties, such as custom slaughtering.

Some activities are considered manufacturing e.g. bakeries, pastry shops, and prepared meat shops, etc. which sell their own production, even though there is retail sale of the products in their own shop.

However, where the processing is minimal and does not lead to a real transformation (e.g. butchers, fishmongers, etc.) the unit is classified to (section G: Wholesale and retail trade; ...).

The treatment of slaughter waste to produce animal feeds is classified in 15.7, while processing food, beverages and tobacco waste into secondary raw material is classified to 37.20, and disposal of food, beverages and tobacco waste in 90.

18534 3 22 DE Publishing, printing and reproduction of recorded media In general, the units, which are known as publishers, issue copies of works for which they usually possess copyright. Works may be in one or more formats including traditional print form, audio tape, CD-ROM or on-line. Publishers may publish works originally created by others for which they have obtained the rights and/or works that they have created in-house.

The printing activities print products, such as newspapers, books, periodicals, business forms, greeting cards, and other materials, and perform support activities, such as bookbinding, platemaking services, and data imaging. The support activities included here are an integral part of the printing industry, and a product (a printing plate, a bound book or a computer disk or file) that is an integral part of the printing industry is almost always provided by these operations.

Processes used in printing include a variety of methods used to transfer an image from a plate, screen, or computer file to some medium, such as paper, plastics, metal, textile articles, or wood. The most prominent of these methods is to transfer the image from a plate or screen to the medium (lithographic, gravure, screen, and flexographic printing). A rapidly growing new technology uses a computer file to directly ''drive'' the printing mechanism to create the image and new electrostatic and other types of equipment (digital or non-impact printing).

Though printing and publishing are often carried out by the same unit (e.g. a newspaper), it is less and less the case that these distinct activities are carried out in the same unit.

This division includes publishing of newspapers, magazines, other periodicals and books.

This division excludes publishing of software, see 72.21.

18941 2 HA H Hotels and restaurants
18942 3 55 HA Hotels and restaurants The section comprises the provision to customers of lodging and/or prepared meals, snacks, and beverages for immediate consumption. The section includes both accommodation and food services because the two activities are often combined at the same unit.

Lodging units provide lodging or short-term accommodations for travellers, vacationers and others.

There is a wide range of units. Some provide lodging only; while others provide meals and recreational facilities, as well as lodging. The type of complementary services provided may vary from unit to unit.

Restaurant activities provide complete meals fit for immediate consumption, wheter traditional restaurants, self-service or take-away restaurants as well as permanent or temporary fish and chips stands and the like with or without seating. Decisive is the fact that meals fit for immediate consumption are offered, not the kind of facility providing them.

Excluded is the production of meals not fit for immediate consumption or not planned to be consumed immediately or of prepared food which is not considered to be a meal (see 15: Manufacture of food products and beverages). Also excluded is the sale of not self-manufactured food which is not considered to be a meal or of meals which are not fit for immediate consumption (see section G: Wholesale and retail trade; ...).
