P742 - INSURANCE REGULATION AND COMPLIANCE (NON-LIFE)  

Background

Insurance, though a matter of contract between two parties, is nevertheless of concern to the public and hence needs to be regulated. The fundamental purpose of insurance regulation / law is to protect the public, consumers and policyholders. Regulation also shapes the structure and conduct of industry and therefore the performance of insurers. Historically, the industry has been shaped by legal principles, practices, and laws with insurance to become one of the highly regulated industries. The regulatory architecture plays a major role in the growth of insurance sector.  Rapid advances in digital technology are also transforming the insurance industry landscape, creating opportunities and challenges for all stakeholders.

 In order to cope with the regulations, insurers often adopt a mind-set of a routine nature of mandatory compliances with a result they are unable to draw optimum benefit out of regulations. However, insurers need to appreciate the philosophy behind the regulations, widen their awareness of trends and develop understanding of various regulations to ensure proper compliance.
