The recently published Equality Act 2010 (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (the Regulations) amend the UK’s Equality Act 2010, in light of the March 2011 judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Association Belge des Consommateurs Test-Achats and others (Case C-239/09). The regulations will come into effect on 21 December 2012, from which date UK insurers shall be prohibited from discriminating on grounds of gender in terms of insurance premium and benefits offered to potential customers. The regulations have been published following a consultation process which commenced in 2011 and the publication of draft regulations in July 2012.
