If you are a consumer, it is your responsibility to answer honestly and conscientiously all questions relating to a proposal for insurance coverage and to provide complete and accurate information that insurers need. This also applies to your responses to assumptions you accept when applying for insurance coverage. This is especially important before setting up a policy, but also when extending or if you change your policy in the medium term. If you fail to disclose information or misre present a fact that could influence the insurer`s decision to accept the risk or conditions offered, this could invalidate the policy and mean that claims may not be paid. Some examples may be: IP insurance requirements – Does the market impose any requirements on your business to maintain a policy that goes beyond the level of coverage to meet the regulatory minimum, and does this requirement exceed the coverage your business has? Are there any unusual or inappropriate conditions, including anything that could result in financial risk or something that goes beyond regulatory or legal standards? There may also be termination clauses that could affect your business if they are not taken into account with other clauses, for example. B to protect the client and not poaching. This is by no means an exhaustive list and supports the need for a thorough review and acceptance process of the TOBA.

Promoting broad acceptance of the new proposal will revolutionize the process of general terms and conditions of sale in the general insurance market, reducing the burden on the resources used for reading, verifying and challenging toba content up to 80 hours.* General conditions for risk transfer and non-risk transfer: GDPR and Public Finance Act 2017 – amended standard agreements and approvals We fall under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) for our insurance mediation services.
