Workers’ Compensation Data Standards
ACORD has been engaged by the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Organizations (WCIO) and International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) at their request to help them and other interested parties to expand upon and modernize their current limited fixed length, flat file format data standards. Given that insurers, ratemaking and statistical organizations are transacting more and more business over the internet and rewriting and developing new systems using newer technology, it makes good business sense to transact data via more robustly defined and architected XML business messages.
Key highlights for the most recent WC XML release include simple changes to the First Report of Injury (FROI) and Subsequent Report of Injury (SROI) messages and Attachment type codes.
Below are the most recent versions of the ACORD Workers’ Compensation Standards.
