On 7 November 2014, the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme Regulations 2014 (in force from 28 November 2014) were published in the UK.  The Regulations were made pursuant to powers in the Mesothelioma Act 2014 (which established a compensation scheme for mesothelioma victims in eligible cases).  Key points that the Regulations cover include the requirement for insurers within scope (in short, UK employers’ liability insurers authorised during a particular 12 month reference period) to pay a levy based on their gross written employer' liability premium in the UK during that period.  The Secretary of State in the UK must notify such insurers of the amounts due and the date of such payment.
