The Insurance Industry is governed by Insurance Act 2006, ACT 724. This Act complies significantly with the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) Core Principles and gives better regulatory powers to the National Insurance Commission. (See Act and Regulations for more information on the Act).
The Act among other things prohibits composite insurance companies. All composite insurance companies therefore had to separate their life and nonlife operations into different companies by December 2007.
The Compensation Fund was set up in 1996 by the National Insurance Commission in conjunction with the insurance companies which underwrite motor insurance business.
The Fund will compensate anybody who has been Injured after 1996 but who is unable to obtain compensation from an insurance company.
The Fund is not meant to relieve insurance companies of their liabilities under policies they have issued. Neither does it intend to encourage motorists not to insure their vehicles or to relieve motorists of their obligations to the victims.
