What are ACORD certificates?

ACORD Certificate Insurance, 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 they 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 Certificate?

Certificates are controlled by the Association for Cooperative Operations Research & Development, a not for profit body based in the US. Sutcliffe & Co can obtain ACORD certificates for our clients if required. If you would like assistance with ACORD certificates please contact us.
