In a never before seen move in the insurance market, Contractors Pollution Liability(CPL) is now specified in the 2013 edition of the “Standard General Conditions of the Construction Contract,” published by the American Council of Engineering Companies, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the National Society of Professional Engineers.
CPL now will join workers compensation, general liability, and auto liability as a required line of coverage for any contractor working under the standard procurement contract. The pollution exclusion is no longer being ignored by the engineers and agents will see requests for CPL insurance from customer they had never thought had a pollution exposure in the past.
