On 11 January 2010, the British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA) launched its 2010 manifesto.
BIBA's key focus in 2010 will be on the changing environment that brokers operate within, particularly the potential change of Government and regulatory structure that any new Government may implement.
The manifesto sets out four priority issues which will be the focus of BIBA's lobbying for 2010. The first, "Suitable insurance, internet sales and signposting", focuses on ensuring that individuals and businesses have access to suitable insurance cover and professional advice about insurance needs and on trade practices in internet sales. "Driving change" focuses on changing certain aspects of trade practice, tax and insurance law to ensure the global competitiveness of the industry. "Regulation and consumer protection" focuses on working to achieve better regulation. Finally, "The UK and Europe" focuses on promoting the interests and importance of London and the UK at UK and European government level.
