Notice of adoption of IAIABC Claims Release Standard Version 3.1 (ACORD XML format) and Minnesota implementation guide
On Aug. 31, 2020, the Department of Labor and Industry's (DLI's) Work Comp Campus will launch, along with the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) Claims Release Standard Version 3.1 (R3.1) (ACORD XML format) and a corresponding Minnesota implementation guide. R3.1 and the corresponding implementation guide will be used by self-insured employers, insurers and third-party administrators to serve and electronically file workers' compensation reports with the commissioner of DLI.
DLI's Notice of Intent to Adopt R3.1 with a link to the corresponding implementation guide (dated Feb. 11, 2020) was published in the State Register on Feb. 18, 2020, and emailed to employers, insurers and other entities for comment. The comment period ended on May 18, 2020. After considering the comments, the Minnesota implementation guide was adopted with technical, grammatical and formatting changes or corrections for clarification, accuracy and ease of use from the guide as proposed. As described in the Notice of Adoption, the changes correct typographical errors, provide consistency among the guide and tabs in the appendices, and clarify existing requirements.
The Notice of Adoption and adopted Minnesota implementation guide can be viewed at the following links.
