UN/ECE - P6. Insurance Core Components
Project leader: Nigel Wooden ( )

1. Objectives

    1.1 Purpose

    The purpose of the project is to develop Core Components for documenting business data in insurance messages, its context and data structure.

    1.2 Scope

    The scope for this project and the area of insurance business data to be covered includes data in the complete cycle of risk management, placement, claims and accounts between customers of insurance companies, the insurance companies and their agents and insurance brokers. It includes domestic and international environments, insurance and reinsurance, single company policies and co-insurance.

2. Deliverables

The deliverables from the project are:

  • A catalogue of Insurance Core Components.
  • Input to the Global Core Components Library Project based on an insurance perspective.

3. Functional Expertise of Membership

The project team is a group of experts with a balanced profile of skills and expertise in information analysis, knowledge of insurance business data and in the presentation and documentation of technical material, either individually or collectively as a group.

4. Geographical Focus

The focus is global and cross-sectorial within the functional area of insurance business data. Each UN/CEFACT head of delegation may designate one or more experts to the project team. In doing so, they may delegate this task to one or more organizations, which may be national, regional or international. Experts are expected to contribute to the work based solely on their expertise. Experts who wish to participate should contact the project lead - Nigel Wooden ( ).

Note: It is understood that current EWG/SWG/D9 Insurance members, who indicate so, will be included within the project.

5. Initial Contributions

The following contributions are submitted as part of this proposal. It is understood that these are only for consideration by the project team and that other participants may submit their own contributions in order to ensure the gathering of as much information as possible from those with expertise and a material interest in the project but at the same time allow diverse voices to comment on the details of the projects and ensures that no single organization can dominate the process:

  • ACORD data dictionary and Core Components from the eMerge project
  • eEG7 data dictionary and Core Components from the SMILe project
  • CSIO commercial insurance data model and dictionary
  • A number of national standard dictionaries of insurance business data definitions

Statement of resource requirements

Participants in the project shall provide resources for their own participation. The existence and functioning of the project shall not require any additional resources from the UN/ECE secretariat.
