General Insurance Code of Practice

The General Insurance Code of Practice has been designed to raise the customer service standards in the Australian insurance industry and protects the rights of policyholders. Developed in concert with consumers, business and the insurance industry, the Code is the General Insurance industry’s promise to be open fair and honest in the way it deals with all its customers.

Whether you’re taking out insurance, making a claim or have a complaint, the Code of Practice lets you know the standards of customer service you can expect from the insurance industry.

The General Insurance Code of Practice specifically addresses the following areas:

  • Buying Insurance
  • Service and claims standards
  • Financial hardship
  • Responding to catastrophes
  • Complaints handling
  • Access to information

CommInsure is proud to be a signatory to the Code.
