There is no such thing as a "comprehensive" general liability

policy. It is "commercial" to differentiate it from personal-lines

coverage. It is commercial general liability policy, or CGL; a

generally standard group of coverages, exclusions, limits. This is

different than a manafest policy where commercial coverages are

added in a customized fashion. A comprehensive policy would be one

where a business owner (BOP) might purchase with a pre-set group of

coverages, exclusions, and limits. Thanks Actually, the term

"Comprehensive General Liability" was replaced in 1986 with the

term "Commercial General Liability." They are essentially the same
