5BPI Basic Policy Information Group

The Basic Policy Information Group contains data elements which describe the insurance policy that is the subject of a given transaction. Although an insured can have multiple policies, the ACORD standards structure permits only one policy per transaction (the policy may, however, be a "package" policy). See the Package Information Group (5PIG) for information on how to send "package" policies.

The Basic Policy Information Group will normally be transmitted as part of a new business transaction, a policy change transaction, a renewal, etc. The reason for its potential inclusion in other than a new business transaction is that this group contains the policy number which may be required by the receiver of the transaction in order to properly locate its filed records (either manual or automated) which relate to the policy. The Basic Policy Information Group is the prime group at Processing Level F of the Insurance Policy Transaction Hierarchy also known as F1.
