I am reading insurance papers for the condo.

In the Lloyd's of London papers, I came across the phrase "Certified Act of Terrorism", presumably for insurance purposes.

Defined as follows:

"Certified Act of Terrorism" means an act that is certified by the Secretary of the Treasury, in concurrence with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General of the United States, to be an act of terrorism pursuant to the federal Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002. The criteria contained in that Act for a "certified act of terrorism" include the following:

1. The act resulted in aggregate losses in excess of $5 million; and

2. The act is a violent act or an act that is dangerous to human life, property or infrastructure and is committed by an individual or individuals acting on behalf of any foreign person or foreign interest, as part of an effort to coerce the civilian population of the United States or to influence the policy or affect the conduct of the United States Government by coercion.

So there you go.
