Business Interruption insurance 

Update on High Court test case


The FCA has today published an update on our High Court test case concerning business interruption (BI) insurance. You can find more information about this announcement in our press release or on our dedicated BI insurance webpage.

As part of this, we have published our proposed representative sample of 17 policy wordings and other key documents which will form the basis of the test case. We are inviting policyholders, their insurance intermediaries, insurers, other stakeholders and their legal advisers to provide their comments on these documents by 3pm on Friday 5 June.

We have also today published a short consultation on draft guidance to set out our expectations of all firms handling BI claims and any related complaints during this period.  Comments are requested by 5pm on Friday 5 June.
