Things to look out for on your Manufacturing Insurance
Manufacturing is a very wide subject, and so its important that your Manufacturing Insurance is tailored specifically for your business.
You should always seek advice from an expert in Manufacturing Insurance, but here are a few generally things you can look out for in your Manufacturing Insurance papers:
Business description – this should be as detailed and specific as possible, so as to ensure everything your business does is covered and accepted by the insurers (a provision for ”associated products/activities” is always good, too).
Sums Insured – be sure check that these are adequate, as this could seriously affect any claim payment.
Security requirements – your policy will stipulate the type of security you must have as a minimum. Sometimes you might think your security arrangements are robust, but if they don’t reflect what the insurance company wants, you could have a problem if you need to make certain claims.
Terms and Conditions – these are all relevant, but the ones you should pay close attention to first and foremost are those that are printed in your policy schedule. If you don’t comply with these or they restrict cover in an area of concern, you’ll want to check your options.
