A duty of care

FERMA proposes to publish a white paper providing the European risk managers’ perspective on the management of safety, health and security risks for work-related international travel and assignments. The paper, which would be prepared in
cooperation with the International SOS Foundation and the EU Occupation Safety and Health Agency (EU-OHSA) will provide
information and guidance on organisations’ duty of care for their workers on cross-border assignments.

Duty of care is the moral and legal responsibility of organisations to their workers, contractors, volunteers and others such as family members, especially when they are on international assignments or in remote areas of their own country. Businesses need to manage those responsibilities and ensure the health and safety of those workers through a proper travel risk management policy. Continue reading


Solvency II and the treatment of third country jurisdictions

For FERMA, an equivalence decision means an easier access to insurance capacities.

The process leading to the Solvency II equivalence of the insurance supervisory system of a third country jurisdiction is conducted by the European Commission in cooperation with EIOPA, the European insurance supervisor. Continue reading


Cyber insurance market: incentives and improved cybersecurity for organisations

French and British initiatives are taking the role of insurance for cyber risks into account in their national strategy for cybersecurity.

In June 2014, the UK Government launched a joint initiative with some major British insurers to increase the level of IT security in UK companies. Called the Cyber Essentials scheme, it is based on certificates and will ensure that certified organisations have a certain amount of security measures in place. Cyber Essentials has been developed in close consultation with the insurance industry and is backed by AIG, Marsh, Swiss Re, the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) and the International Underwriting Association (IUA).
