Notice of adoption of IAIABC Claims Release Standard Version 3.1.5 (IAIABC XML format) and Minnesota implementation guide

On Feb. 9, 2023, the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) Work Comp Campus will update the electronic data interchange (EDI) program to adopt the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) Claims Release Standard Version 3.1.5 (R3.1) XML format. The change will retire the ACORD XML format and mandate that all trading partners reporting EDI will use only the IAIABC XML format. The change will not affect eform trading partners. Testing is tentatively planned for the fourth quarter of 2022.

DLI's notice of intent to adopt R3.1.5 XML format, with a link to the corresponding implementation guide (dated June 24, 2022), was published in the July 5, 2022, edition of the State Register (at 47 SR 6) and emailed to employers, insurers and other entities for comment.

The proposed draft updated guide materials are available.
