Product Safety and Recall Insurance

Demand for product recall cover has increased significantly over recent years as consumer awareness increases, legislative requirements become more stringent, supply chains more complex and contractual conditions more onerous.

High profile recall cases have added to customer concerns and fueled demand. The impact of a product recall event has the potential to cause severe damage to a company's brand reputation and balance sheet and, as such, it is a highly relevant concern for many of our customers.

In this environment, product safety and recall insurance provides a market-leading combination of recall planning and preparation advice, broad coverage plus post-loss consultancy to help minimise damage to the brand and the balance sheet.

Insured products include:

  • Within customers’ care (eg within the warehouse and during transportation)
  • Outside customers’ care (eg once the product has reached the retailer).

Who is the cover suited to?

Manufacturers, distributors and retailers of consumer, food & beverage products with a turnover exceeding $10 million.

  • Consumer products: clothing/textiles, household & electrical goods, cosmetics
  • Food and beverage products: fish, meat, cereals, bakery products, fruit and vegetables, food contact materials.

 

Combined General Liability Insurance

In today's litigious world, businesses have a potential liability for personal injury or property damage, such as:

  • Visitors to premises
  • Buyers of products
  • Any locale where an organisation carries out work.

Combined General Liability Insurance combines public and products liability and is designed to help protect businesses for claims that arise from property damage, personal injury, punitive and exemplary damages. The policy also includes costs incurred under the Forest and Rural Fire Act, 1977.

We recognises how important this issue is to an organisation. We offer tailor-made solutions focused solely on company needs, backed by global support, exceptional service and expert delivery.

 

Employers Liability Insurance

Whilst New Zealand's accident compensation scheme, the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides cover for most accidents at work, employees can still sue for work-related illnesses that the ACC does not cover, including:

  • Mental injury or stress not accompanied by any physical injury
  • Nervous shock or fright not accompanied by any physical injury (this may result in serious illness, such as heart attack or stroke)
  • Disease brought on over time (eg exposure to the elements or extremes of temperature).

All employers - no matter how large or small - are advised to have Employers Liability Insurance. The policy may cover damages and legal costs for employees who have suffered injury or disease arising from, and in the course of, their employment.

 

Statutory Liability Insurance

Statutory Liability Insurance is designed to protect the insured company and it's officers from financial losses as a consequence of an unintentional breach of an act or regulation. If they unintentionally break the law and face a criminal conviction, it helps to protect a company's:

  • Trustees
  • Directors
  • Officers
  • Employees
  • Partners.
