Register for Federal Business Opportunities

Are you interested in doing business with the federal government? If so, you must be registered in the Central Contractor Registration database (  Creating a profile in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) and keeping it current ensures that your business has access to federal contracting opportunities. Once you are registered, your company can conduct business with the federal government, become visible for other companies looking to purchase your products, and open more business opportunities for your company. 

What You Need To Register

1. Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number provided by Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) 

2. Tax Identification Number (TIN) and Taxpayer Name used in Federal tax matters

*Not required for non-U.S. registrants*

3. Statistical Information about your business

4. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Information for payment of invoices

*Not required for non-U.S. registrants*

It also helps to self identify your company using a North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) number. NAICS is the standard used by Federal statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy. NAICS numbers are used by vendors, contractors, and government contracting officers when searching for businesses on the CCR website.

The most common NAICS numbers for companies in the electronic interconnect industry are as follows:

334412 Bare Printed Circuit Board Manufacturing

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing bare (i.e., rigid or flexible) printed circuit boards without mounted electronic components. These establishments print, perforate, plate, screen, etch, or photoprint interconnecting pathways for electric current on laminates.

334418 Printed Circuit Assembly (Electronic Assembly) Manufacturing

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in loading components onto printed circuit boards or who manufacture and ship loaded printed circuit boards. Also known as printed circuit assemblies, electronics assemblies, or modules, these products are printed circuit boards that have some or all of the semiconductor and electronic components inserted or mounted and are inputs to a wide variety of electronic systems and devices.

334419 Other Electronic Component Manufacturing

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing electronic components (except electron tubes; bare printed circuit boards; semiconductors and related devices; electronic capacitors; electronic resistors; coils, transformers and other inductors; connectors; and loaded printed circuit boards).
