Maintenance Requests & Process

Maintenance Requests & Process

ACORD facilitates an open standards development process. Any interested party - not just ACORD members - may propose a change or enhancement to the ACORD Standards. These proposals are known as maintenance requests (MRs) and if approved are presented to​ the appropriate committees for review and vote. ​​

For information about how to submit MRs for specific ACORD Standards programs please scroll down the pa​ge to your area of inter​est.  Da​tes and deadlines associa​ted with the maintenance c​ycle are posted on the cale​ndar page for each Stan​dards program.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
