The Statutory Accounting Principles (E) Working Group is responsible for developing and adopting substantive, nonsubstantive and interpretation revisions to the NAIC Accounting Practices and Procedures Manual (AP&P Manual). The AP&P Manual provides the basis for insurers to prepare financial statements for financial regulation purposes.
Substantive statutory accounting revisions introduce original or modified accounting principles. Substantive revisions can be reflected in an existing Statement of Statutory Accounting Principles (SSAP) or a new SSAP. Nonsubstantive statutory accounting revisions are characterized as language clarifications that do not modify the original intent of a SSAP. SSAPs are considered the highest authority (Level 1) in the statutory accounting hierarchy.
An interpretation to an existing SSAP may be developed to provide timely application, interpretation or clarification guidance. Revisions classified as an interpretation shall not amend, supersede or conflict with existing, effective SSAPs. Interpretations are considered the second highest authority (Level 2) in the statutory accounting hierarchy.
Items for consideration by the Working Group can be submitted via a SAPWG Maintenance Agenda Submission Form (Form A) to the NAIC staff support listed on this Web page.
For revisions adopted by the Working Group, please refer to the Accounting Practices and Procedures Manual Updates Web page
