The Insurance Act was passed in 2015 but the changes are so fundamental and far-reaching that commencement was postponed to 12 August 2016. This was to give the insurance industry time to digest the changes and adapt.
For many years insured parties have complained of the sometimes arbitrary and unfair way that concepts such as “utmost good faith”, breach of condition, and non-disclosure have operated. The Act is intended to create a fairer playing field between insured and insurer and to avoid spurious technical defences to qualify liability. Does it work?
In 50 focused minutes, Rob Langley will explain:
- the principal changes;
- why they matter to you as a commercial policyholder; and
- how you might need to change your approach to insurance.
