As participants in this meeting, we need to be mindful of the constraints of antitrust laws. There shall be no discussions of agreements or concerted actions that may restrain competition. This prohibition includes the exchange of information concerning individual prices, rates, coverages, market practices, claims settlement practices, or any other competitive aspect of an individual company’s operation. Each participant is obligated to speak up immediately for the purpose of preventing any discussion falling outside these bounds.

🛠 Operating Guidelines

The Motor Titling Committee was created when Insurance adjusters across the country are calling lien holders to obtain lien pay off balances and chasing owners for title signatures or power of attorneys’.  Automating this process to send an electronic communication and accept electronic signatures to/from the lien holders/owners, would lead to a more efficient process for all parties involved. 

CIECA aligned the CIECA Standards Development Committees with the CIECA Products. The Motor Titling Committee was renamed Titling Committee.


CIECA’s Titling Committee’s goal is to develop and maintain messaging standards and codes aimed at reducing processing time and errors in the lien release process.  Standards will benefit lienholders, insurers, and vehicle owners in expediting lien releases on total loss vehicles. 

All business needs will be identified to enable the lien release process to move electronically between parties.  Having standards allows the resolution of issues surrounding the lien release process, allows for accurate and timely transfer of funds, and reduces the need for multiple personal contacts.  

Consumers demand a more timely and efficient process, and setting standards is the first step toward this goal.
