With many recent legal and regulatory changes, we understand the difficulty underwriting agencies face in staying up to date. That’s why many rely on our Underwriter Manual + Companion – it’s a one stop guide that describes the full range of your compliance and regulatory obligations, including all of the key changes that were made in 2021.

We update the Underwriter Manual + Companion at least twice a year. We have recently published an update to reflect the significant changes in 2021. If you haven’t updated your policies and procedures for a while, now is the perfect time to do so with the help of the Underwriter Manual + Companion.

The latest updates to the Underwriter Manual + Companion include:

  • Claims handling and settling services as a regulated financial service;
  • The deferred sales model for add-on insurance products;
  • The revised hawking prohibition;
  • The product design and distribution obligations;
  • The new duty not to misrepresent the insurer for consumer insurance products; and
  • The revised complaints and internal dispute resolution regime.
