recommended by the Economic Classification Policy Committee (ECPC) in 
OMB's notice for solicitation of comments published in Part IV of the 
March 11, 2005, Federal Register (70 FR 12390-12399). In addition, 
responding to comments received on the ECPC recommendations, OMB is 
adopting a classification change for Real Estate Investment Trusts 
(REITs) that was not part of the ECPC's recommendations. After 
additional consultation with the National Association of Real Estate 
Investment Trusts, the agencies participating in the ECPC, and other 
interested agencies, NAICS 525390, Real Estate Investment Trusts, will 
be deleted from the classification and portions will be reclassified as 
follows: (1) Equity REITs will be classified in the Real Estate 
Subsector in NAICS Industry Group 5311, Lessors of Real Estate, under 
individual national industries based on the content of the portfolio of 
real estate operated by a particular REIT; and (2) Mortgage REITs will 
remain classified in the Finance Sector but will be moved from NAICS 
525930 to NAICS 525990, Other Financial Vehicles. More details of this 
decision are presented in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. 
In addition to this change, the title of NAICS industry 561422, 
``Telemarketing Bureaus'', is changed to ``Telemarketing Bureaus and 
Other Contact Centers'' to more accurately reflect the content of the 
industry. There is no content change; the title is simply revised to 
reflect the actual activities undertaken and the various technologies 
used.
    In the March 11, 2005, notice, OMB's Economic Classification Policy 
Committee recommended a revision of the industry classification system 
to modify the structure and detail for telecommunications industries 
based on changes that have occurred and are anticipated to occur in the 
future. The ECPC also recommended the creation of a new national 
industry for biotechnology research and development to reflect the 
growing importance of this activity in the economy. Additional changes 
were recommended to more adequately align the activities of producers 
in agriculture; manufacturing; and professional, technical, and 
scientific services.

DATES: Effective Date: Federal statistical establishment data published 
for reference years beginning on or after January 1, 2007, should be
