ACORD contributes to the development of information standards and standards of information forms for insurance through open consensus. ACORD works with its members and partner companies to ensure the implementation of these standards. The process was initiated in 1970 when templates of insurance documentation were standardized (statements, reports, etc.)
The project «Insurance Market Technologies» was launched in 2012. Its mission is to create a structure for the Russian insurance market promoting the idea of contributing to the growth of the market and make it more civilized as well as consolidating the interests of its leading players.
