New CIECA Standards Development Committee Formed
Posted on Dec 20th, 2018
CIECA announced the formation of a new Standards Development Committee with the Property Insurance & Restoration Conference (PIRC), a forum for discussions between property insurance and restoration industry stakeholders.
The PIRC-CIECA Data Standards & Accessibility Committee was formed to address issues within the property restoration and related industries as it applies to data exchange and accessibility. A committee update was recently given during the PIRC meeting on November 13-14 in Atlanta, Ga. For the latest information about the initiative, go to http://gotopirc.com/pirc-cieca-datastandardsinitiative.
“Given CIECA’s expertise in developing data standards for automotive claims systems and the existing membership of the leading property & casualty (P&C) insurance companies, the organization is uniquely positioned to serve the property claims and restoration segment,” said Clint Marlow, chairman of CIECA. “As a result, CIECA is eager to assist PIRC and its member organizations on this initiative.”
CIECA develops electronic standards, codes and standard messages and provides implementation guides to make the industry more efficient. All standards are developed by members. CIECA membership is open to the collision repair and property restoration industries, and related segments: repairers, insurers, OEMs, parts and material suppliers, information and software providers, car rental companies, towing companies, salvage and recycled parts providers, auto glass replacement facilities, subrogation providers, general service providers and property restoration providers. CIECA's goals are to deliver benefits to all participants through reduced development and support costs, lower cost of implementation, reduced barrier to entry and faster development times.
The PIRC is a forum where property insurance and restoration industry stakeholders come together for discussions to enhance understanding and heighten transparency in order to find common ground and communicate possible solutions and/or best practices to improve the industry. It is a unique conference experience designed to allow interaction from all members of the audience, from all segments of the property restoration industry. Attendees participate in the sharing of information and are encouraged to voice their opinion about topics important to the industry. The PIRC has committees in which participants further work collaboratively to define solutions and report back at future meetings for industry consideration or adoption.
