The Insurance Distribution Directive and recent developments

Ik schrijf in op de interesselijst

The Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) has been transposed in Belgium by the Law of 6 December 2018 and has come into effect as of December 28, 2018 replacing the existing framework known in the market as the Law Cauwenberghs (the transposition of the European Insurance Mediation Directive - IMD) and AssurMiFID (the roll out of MiFID I to the insurance sector). One of the effects of IDD is amongst others that the scope of application has been broadened to the entire distribution chain, including (re)insurers, intermediaries, price comparison websites or firms who provide insurance alongside their principal (non-insurance) business.

Now, years after the entry into force, we look back at the key changes, impacts and implementation challenges of IDD on your business to make sure that your organisation is fully ready and IDD proof going forward.
