IIES New Bulletins

IIES Online Services

New York State's Insurance Information & Enforcement System (IIES) was developed as a result of enactment of Chapter 678 of the laws of 1997 as amended by Chapter 509 of the laws of 1998. IIES significantly effects how transaction information about liability insurance policies is communicated between business partners (industry to DMV and DMV to industry).
