   -The first class above split into two new classes:
      -7310 “Private security activities”

          The rationale for the split is the different nature
          of private security vs. investigation activities.

Activities formerly belonging to a class are elevated to a division –
more detail

   Question in the draft:

    There has been a proposal to broaden the scope of

    operators and other reservation service activities”
    to include also this class “Convention and Trade
    Show Organizers” as a whole, either at the third or

  Remain here but promoted at group level.
Changes made in 75 after consultation and TSG
meetings
   751 title changed to “Office administrative and
   support activities”

   7511 title changed to “Combined office administrative
   service activities”
       Intent: To recognize the units that do the office
        administrative work for others on a contract or fee basis, ex:
        doctor/group of doctors hiring a company that does the
        admin work, accepting the new patients, dealing with
        insurance matters, etc
Changes made in 75 after consultation and TSG
meetings (cont’d)

   7512 title changed to “Photocopying, document
   preparation and other office support service
   activities”
       Intent: To classify units that provide a variety of mentioned
        services, but not the combination at once as 7511, a variety
        but individually, one at a time
   7519 grouped with 7539 “Other support activities,
   n.e.c.” , because both of an “other” or “n.e.c.” nature
   “Convention and trade show organizers” renumbered
   and promoted as group 753
   Some further renumbering as result of the above.
