Insurance Distribution Directive Regulations

Published on:

Insurance Distribution Directive

The IDD Regulations will come into operation with effect from 1 October 2018.

The Insurance Product Information Document (“IPID”)

The IDD requires Distributors to provide certain pre-contractual information to the customer.  Some of this information must be provided by way of a standardised insurance product information document (“IPID”), as part of the distribution of non-life insurance products. The IPID will not replace the contractual documentation that is provided with an insurance policy. The objective of the IPID is to provide relevant information about the product to allow the customer to make an informed decision when comparing products across the market.

The IPID itself is a two-page pre-contractual document that must be provided to the consumer or potential consumer at various stages of the sales process.

Aviva process

The IPIDs will be available for you to order through the normal ordering process from our supplier RR Donnelley, email Magdalena Figiel on magdalena.x.figiel@rrd.com

The regulations require the broker to enclose the correct IPID with the customer documentation pack that is issued during the following stages:

  • Quotation – when you provide a quote to a customer you must provide an IPID in the quote pack
  • New Business – when a new policy goes on cover, you are required to include the relevant IPID with the new business policy documents
  • Renewal Invitation – As part of the renewal invitation (Renewal Notice) documentation that is issued prior to renewal the relevant IPID must be enclosed

In addition, they are available here

Commercial Line IPIDs are under development and are scheduled to be available here in advance of the October 1st Deadline.
