Insurance Intermediaries (General Business) (Amendment) Regulations 2012
The Insurance and Pensions Authority has released a consultation document in relation to amendments to the Insurance Intermediaries (General Business) Regulations 1999.
The draft regulations, which are attached to the consultation document, introduce a new exemption for certain licenceholders of the Financial Supervision Commission to be exempt from the requirement to register as an insurance intermediary with the Authority. They also introduce new submission timeframes for audited accounts and update the Authority’s requirements for professional indemnity insurance.
Further information, including the consultation document, is available via the consultation section of the Authority's website, or by using the following link. The Authority invites written comments on the draft regulations by 10 October 2012, though earlier submission would be welcome.
