3 Changes to Documentation & Checking
Have been developing for some months: Background – Richard Ward’s letter 22 May 2006 and subsequent publications Main Features: All risk checking pre-bind: no stage 2 checking (limited volumes/ too late in process) A Copy slip may be used as the sole contract document Key dates: February 2007 no automatic addition to UPR End June 2007 stage 2 checking ceases/Slip policy schemes withdrawn Martin Roberts

4 Changes to Documentation & Checking
Documentation options/new XIS service No further documentation required: Include Attestation Clause LMA3036A or Lloyd’s Policy required Include Attestation Clause e.g LMA3037A XIS Policy Signing Service – limited policy review, not full check (proof read process) Martin Roberts

5 Contract Checking All contract checking will need to be ‘Pre-Bind’ (‘Pre-Bind Quality Assurance’- PBQA): Underwriter/Broker responsibilities for quality Scope of checks for PBQA: CC, Tax & Regulatory and Lloyd’s Advisory/Risk Management Martin Roberts

PBQA addresses CC, Tax & Regulatory and Lloyd’s Advisory/ Risk Management checks Responsibility of MAs from 1 July 2007: Recognition of declining volume of Lloyd’s Policy requests and Cessation of Stage 2 checks by XIS Lloyd’s Market Bulletin will underline risk-based approach expected: Each MA has own PBQA procedures, reflecting individual risk KMF -Lloyd’s Market Bulletin will underline the risk-based approach expected: Each MA will have assessed their own risk and set appropriate PBQA procedures Options to manage PBQA-risk include: reliance on experienced u/w personnel, use of QA Tool checks, use of information in earlier receipt of slips from brokers, use of wordings technicians, use of service providers, use of model wordings, use of s/ware to automate checks

9 Pre-Bind Quality Assurance (PBQA)
Lloyd’s seeking practical approaches to assist the market: Clear risk-based approach set out for all, within U/W Standards Broking community engaged (assisted by Nigel Roberts & LMBC) Access to model wordings (in cooperation with LMA) Evaluation of automated checking with Adsensa (to support experienced underwriting & wordings personnel) Creation of coordinated information resource within Crystal – Tax & Regulatory information, complementing QA Tool Enhancing QA Tool checks/ process (will take time) KMF - Apart from setting a clear approach to PBQA generally, Lloyd’s is seeking practical ways to assist - Recognise the importance of engaging with brokers – early discussions with LMBC, LMA & IUA show a willingness to work together – Broker Forum on 16 April was successful…we are all in this together - Run through each development above - Reinforce that Lloyd’s is here to assist the market now and beyond the 1 July 2007 date

10 Working together – What’s in it for brokers?
