Through their concerted hard work they have addressed an issue here in the UK that affects insurance globally. It will serve as a catalyst for the ongoing wider reform of the industry and will further raise the competitiveness of the UK industry. The FSA said: Contract certainty will continue to be a supervisory priority in 2007 and the FSA will ask the market to focus its efforts going forward on reducing the number of contracts that do not meet the market's contract certainty standards.
