Public Databases

The N.C. Industrial Commission provides public access to four full-text searchable databases via OpenText™ Content Server. They allow citizens to access Full Commission, Deputy Commissioner, and state appellate court decisions about workers' compensation and tort cases.

The Industrial Commission also offers an NCIC Mediator Database. The NCIC Mediator Database lists both Mediators on the N.C. Industrial Commission’s Appointed List and Mediators who are not on that list but may be chosen by the parties as their Mediator.

NCIC OpenText™ Content Server Databases

The Industrial Commission offers public access to the following four full-text searchable databases:

  • Deputy Commissioner: Decisions since 1994
  • Full Commission: Decisions since 1994
  • N.C. Supreme Court and Court of Appeals: Slip opinions since 1994
  • Statutes: N.C. Industrial Commission Rules and N.C. General Statutes related to Industrial Commission matters

The Enterprise search option allows the public to search all four databases simultaneously.

Insurance Coverage Search System

Pursuant to Section 58-36-17 of the North Carolina General Statutes (see Section 1.(b) of Session Law 2012-135, as modified by Section 65.5 of Session Law 2012-194; modified by Section 1. of Session Law 2013-20), please find data here for workers' compensation insurance policy information that includes the employer name and address, carrier name and address; policy number; policy effective dates; policy cancellation dates; and policy reinstatement dates.


Information regarding the workers’ compensation carrier for your employer may be obtained from the Industrial Commission in one of the following three manners:

  1. Searching the Insurance Coverage Search System;
  2. You have filed a Form 18 asserting a claim against the employer.
  3. The employer or carrier has filed a Form 19 reporting your injury.

The Industrial Commission sends out an acknowledgement letter when a Form 18 is processed that contains information about the insurance carrier. However, if you have not yet received an acknowledgement letter and you need this information, you may contact the Industrial Commission. It is not required that you provide insurance carrier information when completing a Form 18 if you do not have that information.
