SIC codes are used to group and classify businesses
About SIC codes
An SIC code, or Standard Industry Classification code, is a 4 or 5 digit number which can be allocated to an organisation to describe the nature of its business. Over time there have been several different SIC systems used in the UK as these taxonomies have been adapted to cope with the changes in UK industry, eg the 1980 system was far more detailed in manufacturing, the SIC 2007 system is much stronger in the IT sector. Many companies still use the SIC 2003 codes which are a slightly modified version of the 1992 SIC system.
