Did commercial general liability insurance replace comprehensive general liability insurance?
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 policies.
