U.S. Small Business Administration.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register on January 26, 2016 (81 FR 4469). The rule increased small business size standards for a number of industries in North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Sector 31-33, Manufacturing. The rule also stated that SBA was amending Footnote 5 to the table of size standards relating to NAICS 326211, Tire Manufacturing (except Retreading), to reflect the current Census Product Classification Codes 3262111 and 3262113. However, SBA inadvertently omitted code 3262111 from the revised text in Footnote 5. This action corrects the omission. This correction does not affect the 1,500-employee small business size standard for NAICS 326211.
Effective December 21, 2016.

On January 26, 2016, SBA published a final rule implementing changes to the size standards for a number of industries in NAICS Sectors 31-33, Manufacturing (81 FR 4469). As discussed in the preamble of the rule, SBA intended to amend paragraphs (a) and (b) of Footnote 5 to the table of size standards relating to NAICS 326211, Tire Manufacturing (except Retreading), by replacing the former Census classification codes 30111 and 30112 with the new Census Product Classification Codes 3262111 and 3262113. However, the amended text inadvertently omitted the new Census Product Classification code 3262111. This action corrects that omission, but does not affect the 1,500-employee small business size standard for NAICS 326211.
