The National Marine Manufacturers Association said the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics asked the marine industry to provide updates to its Standards of Occupational Classification — a published database that covers all American occupations.

The NMMA said the database is an important metric that helps industries highlight their economic impact, but one in which the marine industry historically has been underrepresented.

The NMMA said it and its partners have been working on the industry’s submission, fielding surveys from numerous companies, associations and organizations.

Before the NMMA makes the submission final, the trade group is issuing a last call for data points and asking that anyone who could help the process contact Michael Lewan at mlewan@nmma.org by July 15.
