All reputable professions are governed by a strong Code of Practice – and insurance broking is no different. The Insurance Brokers Code of Practice sets out the minimum service standards consumers can expect when they use an insurance broker and outlines what to do in the unlikely event they have a complaint to make.
The most recent Code of Practice came into effect in 2014. As a living Code, a review process is underway taking into account developments and industry experiences and consulting with relevant stakeholders, including consumer representatives, Code Members, regulators, and relevant government agencies.
