Life Insurance Code of Practice Roadshow

On 12 November 2018, the FSC released the draft of the new Life Insurance Code of Practice for public consultation. The draft Code will be open for consultation until 12 January 2019.

The new Code seeks to strengthen sales, underwriting, product design and claims practices. It also includes new binding obligations for Trustees of superannuation funds.

The FSC has been working with regulators, consumer groups, mental health experts and geneticists for more than 18 months to draft the new Code.

The Life Insurance Code of Practice is mandatory for all FSC member life insurers. The Code is enforced by the independent Life Code Compliance Committee which is administered by the new consumer complaints body, the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
