504 ETRAN Validation - Resolved
The SBA ETRAN team has resolved the issue whereas some of you were receiving the validation: BorrowerContrib #1 has action='insert'. The only action allowed is 'view' when trying to update an existing Etran application. You should now be able to update and submit new and existing ETRAN applications. Feel free to reach out to the Ventures Support team via the Contact Support widget located on the upper right corner of Ventures.

NAICS Codes and RMA data Import Reminder
- Ventures has updated the NAICS Code list to reflect the 2022 list that is used for Etran. It is important to note that RMA has not yet updated the list to 2022 therefore you may throw errors if your RMA data is referencing an inactive NAICS when importing of RMA data.
- The current workaround until RMA updates to 2022 is as follows:
Download the RMA Excel spreadsheet and update the NAICS Code located on the upper portion within each tab prior to importing into Ventures. Select the correct NAICS Code (2022) from within Ventures. You may access /validate the 2022 NAICS codes HERE.
