About Business Industry Codes

Every business and product is part of an industry, often identified by a specific industry code rather than just a name. These codes are standardized by the U.S. government through systems like the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) and the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). When exploring business databases, you can often search using these codes to get more accurate results. For the correct industry codes, refer to the SIC and NAICS sources provided.
