BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Dispute resolution protocol available


NEW YORK—A nonprofit alliance of global corporations, law firms, scholars and public institutions has released a tool to help manage the cost of disputes between insurers and reinsurers.

The new procedural protocol from the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution—the CPR International Reinsurance Dispute Resolution Protocol—was developed by a committee of insurers and reinsurers.

The protocol sets a schedule for companies in a dispute to exchange information, negotiate and, if needed, enter mediation.

The protocol, available at, includes a statement of best practices. Companies can incorporate the protocol into reinsurance contracts or adopt it in specific instances.
