GreenLight® Diligent Effort Platform

ACCEL’s GreenLight® Diligent Effort Platform is an automated system that automatically requests, tracks, submits and stores required diligent effort activities for surplus lines brokers.

Diligent effort, also know as diligent search, can present enormous headaches for surplus lines brokers.

With many states requiring surplus lines brokers to authenticate that their retail agents receive coverage declinations from the admitted market before binding a surplus lines policy and each state presenting different requirements and different forms, it is all too easy for mistakes and omissions to be made.

The GreenLight® Diligent Search platform from ACCEL Compliance was designed specifically to automate and streamline this tangled process.


  • Streamlined, standardized process for capturing, tracking and storing surplus lines declinations.
  • Efficient and accurate readiness for internal and state regulatory compliance audits.
  • Free-up staff and resources for value-added business activities.
  • Fingertip access to all diligent effort detail for every bound policy.
  • Makes the diligent effort process easy for retail agents.
  • Eliminates cumbersome record-keeping by internal teams.


  • Easy, menu-driven completion of diligent effort requirements.
  • Drag-and-drop document upload eases submissions.
  • E-signatures eliminate scanning, faxing and other manual steps.
  • Friendly email reminders customized to deadline schedule.
  • Core policy information captured automatically, saving manual steps.
