The Italian Council of State expressed its opinion in relation to the scheme of regulation to be issued by the Ministry of Economic Development concerning the implementation of an archive aimed at preventing fraud in relation to motor insurance policies, as provided for by Law no. 221 of December 2012.

The most important remark raised by the Council of State relates to the requirement by the Ministry of Economic Development to detail the information which shall be considered as indicators of fraud risk; the remark is aimed at limiting the scope of car owners’ personal and sensitive data processing.

The regulation is expected to be enacted in the next few months following a public consultation process.
