Additional insured endorsements can offer blanket coverage or just apply to a specific entity.

The commercial general liability (CGL) coverage form has a “who is an insured” section in which it describes “an insured” to whom the provisions of the CGL form apply. However, that section does not deal with entities known as “additional insureds,” those that are added as insureds to the CGL form by way of endorsements.

In today’s business world, a company is often asked (or required) to put another entity on its commercial general liability coverage form as an additional insured. This is usually done by issuing an endorsement to the CGL form, adding the other entity as an insured.
