Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Code List
The Standard Industrial Classification Codes that appear in a company’s disseminated EDGAR filings indicate the company’s type of business. These codes are also used in the Division of Corporation Finance as a basis for assigning review responsibility for the company’s filings. For example, a company whose business was Metal Mining (SIC 1000) would have its filings reviewed by staffers in the Office of Energy & Transportation.
