On 18 March 2015, an interim report was published by the UK insurance fraud taskforce. Interested parties are invited to provide their views by 13 May 2015. The taskforce has decided to focus on four key areas - (a) the issues which encourage fraudulent claims, (b) motivations behind policyholder behavior, (c) adequacy of deterrents and (d) the role that fraud data can play. It is intended that a final report will be produced later in 2015.  In the meantime, based on a recommendation by the taskforce, the Association of British Insurers and the British Insurance Brokers Association have agreed to update their industry guidance on the prevention of application fraud.
