On 24 May 2018, the European Commission published a proposal for a new European Directive amending the Motor Insurance Directive. The proposal is primarily aimed at ensuring that third party victims of motor vehicle accidents will be compensated, even where the relevant insurer is insolvent. In cross-border situations, it is proposed that the compensation body in the victim's Member State of residence will pay the claim and be reimbursed by the equivalent body from the insurer's home Member State. This aims to ensure that financial responsibility is borne by the insurance sector of the home Member State of the insurer, whilst at the same time allowing for quick payments to victims. The proposal also seeks to introduce measures aimed at ensuring that there is no discrimination as between residents of different Member States in relation to how claims history is taken into account in calculating insurance premiums.
