The second is the Product and Service Code established by the Federal Procurement Data System. The SBA received a request on July 15, 2004 to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Sporting and Athletic Goods Manufacturing. In response, on July 30, 2004, SBA published in the Federal Register a notice of intent to the waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Sporting and Athletic Goods Manufacturing. SBA explained in the notice that it was soliciting comments and sources of small business manufacturers of this class of products. In response to this notice, comments were received from interested parties. SBA had determined from these sources that there were no small business manufacturers of this class of products, and therefore granted the waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Sporting and Athletic Goods Manufacturing, NAICS 339920. Recently, SBA discovered the existence of a small business manufacturer of this class of products. Accordingly, based on the available information, SBA has determined that there is a small business manufacturer of this class of products, and is therefore considering terminating the class waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Sporting and Athletic Goods Manufacturing, NAICS 339920.
