Data Standards

ACORD is committed to helping the industry achieve the goal of straight-through processing. We offer many public standards specifications and documentation for download from this website, as well as Members Only documentation to aid member organizations in implementing the specifications.

You will need an account on the ACORD.org website to download standards files.  If you already have an account, then you can use that account to log in. Otherwise you must create a new account.*

If you have any problems, please contact Member Services by email at memberservices@acord.org or phone +1.845.620.1700, option 2.
