CNA/Schinnerer Changes Blanket Additional Insured Coverage on BAPP 07.15.2003

July 15, 2003
Victor O. Schinnerer announces a change to the CNA/Schinnerer business owners' policy for architects and engineers. The Blanket Additional Insured Endorsement now provides broader coverage to the additional insured.

The endorsement formerly provided coverage only for "ongoing operations." Once work on the project ceased, coverage was discontinued. CNA/Schinnerer has amended this clause to include insurance for "work" performed as part of the agreement with the original policyholder, extending coverage to covered claims that are made after the work is completed.

The endorsement is available for CNA/Schinnerer's Business Account Package Policy (BAPP), a property and casualty package designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized architectural and engineering firms. The endorsement is not available in Iowa, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina or Vermont.
