                                  Code screen will default to Yes.

                                  Individual class codes can still be changed to
                                  Deductible Apply - No, when necessary.

Background/Additional Information:
Prior to this change, when Liability Deductible was selected at the Policy Level, the Ded Apply field
defaulted to No and had to be manually changed to Yes on every class code screen. This resulted in
deductible policies interfacing to CESAR without the correct Deductible Code information.

3.5    P3 – Print Rule Change for Contamination by a Refrigerant

 Functional                                                                        Training
 Component    Category     Change Description                                      Materials
 Printing     Other        An enhancement was made for displaying coverage         N/A
                           for Contamination by a Refrigerant when the policy
                           does not include any Stock coverage, to now display
                           "NOT COVERED" on the Additional Coverages page.

                           Previously, if a premises did not include Stock
                           coverage, Z-SPIRE printed "NOT COVERED" for
                           Contamination By a Refrigerant on the Summary of
                           Premises page.

                           With this release, "NOT COVERED" will no longer
                           display for Contamination By a Refrigerant on the
                           Summary of Premises page. However,
                           Contamination By a Refrigerant still displays the
                           25,000 limit on the Additional Coverages page.

                           Upon completion of this enhancement, when a policy
                           does not include Stock coverage, Contamination by a
                           Refrigerant will display “NOT COVERED” on the
                           Additional Coverage page in lieu of the 25,000 limit.

                           No workaround is necessary. It is acceptable to
                           display the limit.
