AIA Memorandum

In September of 2009, the Association for Cooperative Operations Research and Development (ACORD) amended its Form 25 Certificate of Liability Insurance (ACORD Form 25) as it relates an insurer’s duty to give notice of cancellation of an insurance policy. The changes, and related rulings by state insurance administrative agencies, make it difficult or impossible for construction industry professionals to satisfy some requirements found in several AIA Contract Documents. This memorandum provides an overview of these ACORD Form 25 changes and related rulings by state agencies, identifies affected AIA Contract Documents, and suggests edits users might incorporate into standard AIA Contract Documents to respond to these changes and rulings.
