The Importance of Maintaining Your Personal Liability Insurability

This workshop is being held separate to, but alongside the ABC 2019 Conference on Thursday 19 September 2019, 1.00pm to 3.00pm at the Ellerslie Event Centre in Auckland.

Over the last 4 months we have seen headlines in Australia such as “Cladding Insurance Issue send certifiers to the brink” and “Government urged to act on Building Certifier Insurance crisis”. As a result of a number of fires around the world, including the Grenfell fire in the UK, has elevated the risk rates on cladding affecting buildings. Insurers are understood to be declining to provide professional indemnity insurance or, offering new terms that see significant premium increases or exclusions for fire approval related work such as claddings for building certifier professional indemnity policies. This is preventing certifiers in signing off new buildings and forcing some to cease business.

Dr Jonathan Barnett from Basic Expert Pty Ltd, Australia, will be in New Zealand on 19th September and together with John Lucas from the Insurance Council New Zealand, will discuss these issues and the potential impact in the New Zealand market.  Some discussion points will include: What is the risk of this type of non-compliance occurring on a large scale in New Zealand and how insurers and building consent authorities may react.
