Among other things, is one of the two major "rating bureaus" in the United States, along with the Insurance Services Office.[1] Rating bureaus publish standardized insurance policy forms and prices that insurance company customers use in their business.[2] This expedites compliance and allows the policyholder customers to compare policy forms more easily. Companies which do not use the standardized form exactly will often use it as a base with subtle modifications.

It was founded in the 1930s as the Chicago-based Transportation Insurance Rating Bureau focused exclusively on inland marine insurance. In 1975 its name was changed and scope was broadened to include all insurance products.[3]
