The Business Interruption policy can insure the project company for loss of Net Profit and Standing Charges until such time as normal production or commercial operation is resumed. The Indemnity Period typically ranges from 3 to 18 months depending on the nature of the operations. Insured perils follow the Fire or Property All Risks policy, and there has to have been an accepted property damage claim for the associated business interruption claim to be valid
Construction All Risks (“CAR”)
This type of policy covers the civil works from commencement of construction to final handover (including testing/commissioning and extended maintenance – normally 12 months). The policy also normally includes a section covering claims arising from third parties (Third Party Liability) who are injured, or whose property is damaged, during the construction period.
Erection All Risks (“EAR”)
Advanced Loss of Profits (“ALOP”)
The policy pays for Anticipated Net Profit plus Standing Charges during the period of delay, from the scheduled date of commencement of commercial operation up to the actual date of commencement of commercial operation, subject to a time excess and the Indemnity Period. The delay must have occurred due to a loss during construction, and payable under the Construction/Erection All Risks policy.
Machinery Breakdown and Business Interruption Following Machinery Breakdown
This policy covers mechanical and electrical breakdown of plant and machinery, and the ensuing loss of production (cover which is often excluded from Fire and Property All Risks policies). Policies can also cover loss to surrounding property damaged by breakdown, such as in the case of explosion of boiler machinery. The cover is important for critical items of plant where limited back-up or standby facilities exist or where sophisticated and expensive equipment is in place. Companies should consider maintaining adequate back-ups, and holding spares of critical components.
Third Party Liability
(also known as General Liability or Public Liability)
This policy protects the policyholder in respect of legal liability to third parties (not employees) for both bodily injury and for any loss of or damage to their property.
All businesses have a legal liability to their customers, suppliers and the general public.
Product Liability insurance indemnifies the insured for compensation awarded in court or compensation agreed with insurer’s consent out-of-court, as well as costs associated with defending claims, both of which may be substantial.
Product Liability is imposed under several different legal theories, including negligence, breach of contract and strict liability in tort.
Professional Indemnity Or Errors And Omissions (PI/E&O)
Marine Inland Transit Insurance Policy
Marine All Risks
- Loss of money and/or other property belonging to the insured or for which they are responsible stolen by an insured employee during the currency of this section.
- Direct financial loss sustained by the insured as a result of fraud or dishonesty of an insured employee all of which occurs during the currency of this section which results in dishonest personal financial gain for the employee concerned.
Goods In Transit
Loss of or damage to the whole or part of the property described in the schedule, owned by the insured or for which they are responsible in the course of transit by the means of conveyance or other means incidental thereto and caused by any accident or misfortune not otherwise excluded.
Third Party Only (TPO) insurance is the minimum legal requirement for vehicles to be driven on public roads. TPO insurance will only cover loss, damage or injury inflicted on a third party. If you have Third Party Only insurance, your own losses, damage or injury (apart from passengers) will not be covered. A Motor Trader therefore really needs extra protection for his vehicles above this basic Third Party requirement.
Third Party Fire and Theft (TPFT) is a step-up from Third Party Only. TPFT pays out in the event of loss or damage to vehicles under the motor trader’s custody or control in the event of theft or fire, as well as to third party damage or injury claims. This is particularly relevant if vehicles are stolen and “torched”. The cost of TPFT cover is nowadays not significantly different to Comprehensive cover.
Comprehensive (Comp) A Comprehensive policy includes the same cover as TPO & TPFT plus accidental damage to the vehicles that the trader owns or has care of. So if a customer’s vehicle is damaged in an accident while being tested, Comprehensive cover will cover the cost of the repairs.
