Insurance Brokers’ Good Practice Guide
At its launch BIBA’s Insurance Brokers’ Standards Committee (IBSC) agreed that it would be of benefit to members to create a living, breathing good practice guide containing the particular areas of broking where we have an agreed benchmark of good practice and set a standard.
On 5 March 2020, I chaired the IBSC for the first time from a TV screen. Who could have foseen what would happen over the next two years as we discussed how to keep our Good Practice Guide relevant.
It’s more important than ever to have a process when operating in a crisis or changing situation. Across 11 chapters ranging from clients to claims and insurers to employees there is useful non-prescriptive guidance to provide a degree of calm logic amongst the chaos.
This online publication contains voluntary good practice guidance and information for brokers – there is no suggestion that any members must work this way.
We welcome any feedback, questions or additions so please email us via [email protected]
