Publication Changes

Skip Navigation Links.

February 2018

The adoption of the CCSD Schedule and related codes by insurers has been a consistent message at both CCSD Board and Working Group meetings. This was also the top theme that came out of the meetings held with individual providers.

Analysis has shown that adoption of new CCSD codes over the last 12 months is lower than average, indicating that the issue may be related to timeliness of adoption rather than overall alignment.

The CCSD Board recognise that CCSD is non-binding and the application of codes is a commercial decision by each insurer to take, however, it acknowledges the benefits of greater alignment to one single schedule. Therefore, a change to the publication process will be adopted going forward in an attempt to improve consistency.

Changes will continue to be published  within 10 working days of the CCSD Working Group meeting at which they are agreed (please see below for schedule), however, each change will now have an attached recommended adoption date. This is the date by which it would be expected that the change has been implemented. This does not stop organisations from implementing the changes prior to this date, in fact I would encourage this.

This will take effect from the publication of changes on 8th March 2018, which will have an attached recommended adoption date of 1st May 2018. Thereafter recommended adoption dates will be quarterly; in May, August and November 2018 and February 2019 and so forth.
