What are ACORD Certificates?
ACORD Certificates or ACORD Forms are standardised documents that summarise what liability insurance an organisation holds.
Why do I need an ACORD Certificate?
When operating internationally, especially in the USA, customers and suppliers often require confirmation of what insurance cover you have. The ACORD form is a single sided document that clearly sets out the main details of what liability insurance you have in a clear format. If you are trading with US companies they will commonly insist upon sight of a satisfactory ACORD Certificate before they do business with you.
How do I get an ACORD
Certificates are controlled by the Association for
Cooperative Operations Research & Development, a not for profit body based
