ISO ClaimSearch Announces New NMVTIS Compliance Reporting Service

JERSEY CITY, N.J., March 31, 2009 — ISO ClaimSearch®, the property/casualty insurance industry’s comprehensive claims information system, announces the development of a new regulatory compliance service: the ISO ClaimSearch NMVTIS Compliance Reporting Service.

Effective today, insurers, salvage companies, junk yards, recyclers, and shredders are required to report total-loss and salvage information to the National Motor Vehicle Title Information Service (NMVTIS). ISO ClaimSearch has been designated an authorized data consolidator by NMVTIS, which allows insurers, salvage companies, and others to report the required data to ISO ClaimSearch to comply with the requirement.

ISO ClaimSearch will include the NMVTIS reporting as part of its regular service for insurer participants in the auto segment of ISO ClaimSearch at no additional charge. Noninsurer companies can also report through ISO ClaimSearch for a fee.

By reporting to NMVTIS through ISO ClaimSearch, insurers can:

  • save on programming costs or the cost of using an outside vendor
  • streamline workflow because they already report data to ISO ClaimSearch
  • be assured of compliance with the NMVTIS regulations

NMVTIS was established by the Anti-Car Theft Act of 1992 to assist in preventing the introduction or reintroduction of stolen and salvaged motor vehicles into interstate commerce. NMVTIS provides authorized recipients with instant and reliable access to motor vehicle titling information maintained by the states. It is operated under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Justice.

For more information on the ISO ClaimSearch NMVTIS Compliance Reporting Service and data reporting requirements, please contact ISO ClaimSearch Customer Support at 1-800-888-4476, or send e-mail to claimsearchnmvtis@iso.com.
