In its latest regulatory round-up, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has reminded insurers offering professional indemnity insurance of its Handbook requirements.

Insurance firms applying pandemic exclusions are reminded of the minimum requirements in MIPRU 3.2 and should consider whether exclusions are consistent with product governance obligations to ensure that the policy is compatible with the needs, characteristics and objectives of the target market. Policies with exclusions must also meet customers’ demands and needs in accordance with ICOBS rules.
