MIB Inc., the Westwood, Mass.-based voluntary association of nearly 600 life insurance companies, and ACORD, a not-for-profit insurance industry standards developer in Pearl River, N.Y., are working together to promote the adoption of data standards within the life insurance industry. ACORD XML is a non-proprietary, industry-specific standard of XML technology, which provides a generic method of processing and transferring data via the Internet.

MIB plans to incorporate ACORD XML for Life Insurance standards in its existing MIB interface, with plans for the eventual deployment of a full XML system.
