Class code 4683 is used for employees that work within a facility that manufacturers’ oil, specifically vegetable oil, not otherwise classified. This is most commonly done by either a hydraulic pressing or a rotary screw pressing method. To begin, employees will receive raw materials from others, like soybeans, peanuts, corn germ, flaxseed, rice bran, castor beans, sunflower seeds, olive pomace, and cocoa beans. Mechanical implements will then be used in the milling of the seeds or beans and then each will be steam cooked as required. Once cooked, the seeds or beans are then pressed (using the desired method) to expel the oils. In addition, this classification also includes any incidental refining of the oils that is required, to bring them to their final form.

Traditionally used vegetable oils, as well as those used in livestock feed and cottonseed oil lard substitutes, would be included under class code 4683. While this is a NOC classification, trades that are excluded and that should be classified elsewhere include the manufacturing of butter substitutes, corn products, mechanically produced cottonseed oil, and vegetable oils produced with a solvent extraction process.
