Committee Members:



Work with the US Department of Labor to establish official occupation codes for the primary forms occupations of Forms Manager, Forms Analyst, Forms Designer, Forms Technician, and others. These codes are already established in Canada. They are needed to provide recognition to our profession.


Progress Reports:

Information about occupations – employment levels and trends, pay and benefits, demographic characteristics, skills required, and many other items – is widely used by individuals, businesses, researchers, educators, and public policy-makers. The Standard Occupational Classification or SOC helps ensure that occupational data produced across the Federal statistical system are comparable and can be used together in analysis.

To reflect changes in the economy and the nature of work, the SOC must be revised periodically. Input from the public is a key part of the revision process. The following discussion is intended to provide audiences interested in providing recommendations on revising the SOC with background on several topics:

 What is the SOC?
 How is the SOC structured,
 Revising the SOC,
 The process for the next SOC revision, and
 Input requested by the SOC Policy Committee - What type of information is critical in making decisions on whether to add, delete, or revise the classification of the occupations included in the SOC.

The discussion begins with background information on what the SOC is, who is responsible for it, and how it is structured. A brief history of SOC revisions is provided, and the process and general timeline for the 2018 revision are described. The discussion wraps up with how to provide input for the revision, the type of information needed for the revision, and how readers can stay connected with the revision process.
