The objectives of the UK Asbestos Working Party are to:
- collect UK insurance market data on a yearly basis for UK asbestos related claims
- collect data other relating to UK asbestos related diseases, such as from the CRU, etc.
- compare trends in survey data against the AWP’s market estimates and react accordingly
- maintain contact with key individuals and organisations such as the HSE, Prof. Peto, etc.
- understand and respond legal and/or industry developments affecting asbestos related claims in the UK
- if a new market estimate is required to develop and make available, a population/insurance claim projection models for UK asbestos related claims.
UK Asbestos Working Party Data Request
The UK Asbestos Working Party periodically carries out market surveys of insurance company UK asbestos-related claims in order that they can estimate the future cost of UK asbestos-related claims to the insurance industry.
We are currently calling for participants to complete the survey to year end 2018.The working party would like to cover as much of the UK Insurance Market as possible. The greater the coverage of this survey, the more relevant the working party’s findings are likely to be to the insurance industry as a whole. If your organisation has exposure to UK asbestos-related claims and you would like to participate in the survey (on an anonymous basis) please download the survey template and submit the completed survey to Emma Thomas, GI Communities Executive, email@example.com by Friday 17 May 2019.
