In some instances, the operations of a business may not be explicitly described by a classification. In this case, the operations are assigned to the classification that is most analogous to the operations, from the standpoint of processes and hazards.

Assignment by Analogy Example

For example, there is no specific classification for dog walking services. However, Classification 8831(3), Kennels, is closely related in terms of processes and hazards. Therefore, companies engaged in dog walking services will generally be assigned, by analogy, to Classification 8831(3).
