What is AL3?
The ACORD AL3 Standard was developed in the early 1980s. AL3 is a flat file of fixed length. AL3 Standard is widely used across the P&C Industry today. According to ACORD, over 500 insurance companies use this standard to share policy data with over 20,000 agents and/or brokers using over 40 individual agency management systems. It is used exclusively for P&C policy download. A carrier sends a full image of all policies on which a transaction has occurred including new business, renewals, and changes of any kind to the agent, daily through the AL3 files.
