Insurance Brokers Code of Practice

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. Written in accessible language, the Code aims to build professional competence in the broking profession, and increase consumer confidence in insurance brokers.
