Simplebatch for the Narco Asbestos Trust

A Simple approach to uploading claims.


Simplebatch is a way for users to upload a batch of Claimant and/or Claim information to eClaims. Users will be able to create a spreadsheet using the Microsoft Excel program and to upload this file to eClaims for processing.

The following instructions provide the technical requirements for submissions in the Simplebatch process and do not set forth the requirements of North American Refractories Company Asbestos Personal Injury Settlement Trust (the "NARCO Asbestos Trust") for statute of limitations or any other purpose.  Please refer to the NARCO Asbestos Trust’s documents and announcements at www.narcoasbestostrust.org and www.claimsres.com for further information.

How it Works

Simplebatch is simply an Excel spreadsheet formatted in such a way that eClaims can recognize the correct fields and extract the data. For this reason you must use the template provided by CRMC to create your spreadsheet. Just creating a spreadsheet with the same column names as the template will not work.You must use the template!

Creating a Simplebatch

Creating a Batch requires the following steps:

  1. Opening the template provided by CRMC
  2. Fill out the template
    1. See below for instructions for filling out the template
  3. Saving your batch

Filling out the template is slightly different depending on the type of claims you are filing. Make sure you select the correct template.

ER Claims (Expedited Review)

PEL Claims (Pre-established, liquidated)
