Small Business Size Standards: Other Services Industries
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) proposes to increase the small business size standards for 18 industries in North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Sector 81, Other Services, and retain the current standards for the remaining 30 industries in the Sector. As part of its ongoing initiative to review all size standards, SBA has evaluated each industry in Sector 81 to determine whether the existing size standards should be retained or revised. This proposed rule is one of a series of proposals that will examine industries grouped by an NAICS Sector. As part of this series of proposed rules SBA is publishing concurrently in this issue of the Federal Register a proposed rule to modify small business size standards in Sector 44-45, Retail Trade and, in Sector 72, Accommodation and Food Services. SBA has established its ``Size Standards Methodology'' and published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register a notice of its availability on SBA's Web site at http://www.sba.gov/size. SBA has applied ``Size Standards Methodology'' to this proposed rule.
