NCCI’s content transformation journey is underway with the release of the
Basic Manual and
Residual Market Manual effective November 1, 2021.
Here is a status of the transformed filed manuals since the time the filings were submitted starting in December 2020:
NCCI completely redesigned and optimized the content of these two manuals, based on your feedback, to provide a new structure that addresses:
- Format Methods
- State-Based Rules
- Topic-Based Format
- Class Codes by State (for
- Improved Navigation
We will continue this process with all of our manuals. When accessing this information, you will notice a consistent experience—no matter which manual you reference.
Interim Solution for Manuals
NCCI is working on a new content delivery system for the manuals. To streamline navigation until the new system is available, we are publishing state-based manuals as PDFs in the current
Manuals Library on
ncci.com. The PDFs include the approved state manual, Content Reference ID Map, and the current approved rates/loss costs. Each time an update is made to the manual, we will publish the latest PDF and retain all previous versions.
Going forward, we suggest reviewing state and multistate item filing circulars to identify state-specific exceptions to rules, programs, forms, and algorithms that have been filed. NCCI will continue to publish content that has been filed and approved to individual state manuals.
Two documents will identify changes:
Summary of Changes||
Comparison of Changes|
|Supporting information about the change, including the subject, topic, unique ID number associated to the topic, reason for the change, the item filing ID number (when applicable).||Comparison of approved content with the latest updates. Additions will be indicated by underlined text and deletions will be indicated by strikethrough.|
You will notice that the transformed manual content is structured by topic and not by rule number. We suggest referring only to the manual or the “topic title” when referencing information from the transformed manuals, depending upon how you are citing the content. The Content Reference ID Map is a helpful resource. For example, the map for the
Basic Manual shows the
Basic Manual 2001 titles and rule numbers mapped to
Basic Manual 2021 topic titles for each state.
A similar map is also provided for the
Residual Market Manual. You will find the Content Reference ID Map in state-specific announcement circulars for Item Filings B-1444 and RM-W-8047 and on each state-specific manual landing page in the
NCCI’s Atlas Initiative page for information on continuous enhancements and look for Atlas Content Transformation training modules coming soon.
