Status of revisions to the ACORD 28 insurance form

ACORD formed a working group in the spring of 2007 to study revisions to the 2006 Form 28, Evidence of Commercial Property Insurance. The working group has reached an impasse. At its meeting on February 27, 2008, the working group decided to suspend its work pending mediation by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. NAIC asked trade associations for the lenders, insurers and producers to submit names of possible mediators by Friday, March 7. By Thursday, March 20, NAIC had whittled the number of potential mediators to four and asked the trade associations to submit their top two choices. At a meeting of the Property and Casualty Committee of NAIC on Monday, March 31, the NAIC announced that Thomas R. Kline of the Andrews Kurth firm in Washington DC had been chosed as the mediator. Ground rules for the mediation and a schedule have not yet been determined. Update 8/10/08-The insurance commmissioners of Minnesota and Nebraska recently have issued statements that the ACORD 28 form does not amend the underlying insurance policies. Copies of these statements are posted below. Update 8/27/08-An agreement regarding the ground rules and costs of the mediation is being executed by ACORD, the Mortgage Bankers Ass'n and representatives of the insurance industry.
