The Department of Finance has launched a public consultation in relation to the feasibility of establishing and operating an insurance claim-by-claim register in Ireland. In its Report on the Cost of Motor Insurance, the CIWG recommended establishing a National Claims Information Database (currently being developed) to collect and make available aggregated claims data in an effort to improve transparency in relation to claims and the cost of insurance. The CIWG also considered a claim-by-claim register but identified a number of potential difficulties in relation to how such a register would work (e.g. in relation to data protection). The CIWG therefore recommended carrying out a feasibility study. The consultation seeks the views of all stakeholders including insurance undertakings and intermediaries by Friday, 22 June 2018.
