SBA RIN: 3245-AH09 Publication ID: Fall 2022 
Title: Small Business Size Standards: Manufacturing and Industries With Employee Based Size Standards in Other Sectors Except Wholesale Trade and Retail Trade 

The Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (Jobs Act) requires SBA to conduct every five years a detailed review of all size standards and to make appropriate adjustments to reflect market conditions.  As part of the second 5-year review of size standards under the Jobs Act, in this proposed rule, SBA will evaluate all industries in North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Sector 31-33 (Manufacturing) and industries with employee-based size standards in other sectors except Wholesale Trade and Retail Trade and make necessary adjustments to their size standards.  This is one of a series of proposed rules that will examine groups of NAICS sectors.  SBA will apply its revised Size Standards Methodology, which is available on its website at, to this proposed rule.
