Uniform Information Services Announces The Release Of AuthenticWeb™ Record Retention Matrix

New Information Tool to Help Ensure Compliance with
Often Misunderstood Requirements

(ACTON, Mass., January 13, 2003 – Uniform Information Services (Uniform), the nation’s leading provider of information solutions for compliance professionals in the property and casualty insurance industry, announced today that it has released a new AuthenticWeb™ Matrix covering state record retention requirements.

Record Retention requirements can vary widely from state-to-state. Knowing time requirements and exact contents required for retention can be a daunting task. Market Conduct Exam criticisms show that insurers are frequently cited for Record Retention errors. Uniform’s AuthenticWeb™ Record Retention Matrix is a solution that provides a quick and easy-to-use table of the requirements in each state making it easier for insurers to maintain compliance and avoid errors that may lead to enforcement actions and possible fines.

This new Matrix will save compliance professionals valuable research time. AuthenticWeb™ Matrices, which are offered over the Internet, are updated monthly to ensure current regulatory information. The Record Retention Matrix offers the added benefit of the ability to be linked directly to the text of cited statutes and regulations. Current ComplianceWare® subscribers who purchase the Matrix will have this ability as part of their existing subscription.
