GN 01720.105 U.K. Coverage Certifications

A. Policy

U.K. coverage can be certified to us in either of two formats: the traditional manually prepared form UK/USA 3 or a computer generated form which combines the UK/USA 2 liaison form and the UK/USA 3. The coverage information is found in Part 9, Insurance Details, of the computer form or in Part 3, Worker's UK Insurance Record, of the manual form.

Both formats are acceptable certifications of U.K. coverage, as long as they are furnished directly by the U.K. agency to OIO or the FSP.

The UK/USA3 form should be mailed to the addresses below:
