Q: How will ACORD enforce the cost / licensing?
A: DIRECT ACCESS: If you access ACORD forms directly, you will be directed to sign up for an annual license when you attempt access on or after January 1.
A: AGENCY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: On or after January 1, when you attempt to access ACORD forms, your system should prompt you to the ACORD forms licensing website. Follow the prompts to register.
Q: If you are a UIA member – how do you claim your free access / license?
A: Agents using a management system will be directed to access the ACORD Forms License website and follow a very short process to claim their complimentary license.
They then return to the management system workflow, acknowledge that they have obtained the license, and return to accessing the needed ACORD forms. This process will be required annually.
A: Direct access agents will use the license registration website directly.
