RPost Services Provide Assistance in Compliance with the Insurance Act 2015

London, United Kingdom – February 9, 2015 – British insurance brokers are facing new rules under The Insurance Act 2015 that require a fair presentation of the risk, with clear and accessible disclosure of every material circumstance which the insured knows, or ought to know or, failing that, sufficient information to put a prudent insurer on notice that it needs to make further enquiries.

If questioned, the insured, or the broker, needs to be able to demonstrate proof of these disclosures. BIBA approved facility provider RPost’s Registered Email™ technology provides senders with irrefutable proof of the content and timestamp disclosures that were electronically delivered.

To assist in complying with these requirements, the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has approved RMail® secure and certified electronic messaging services for use as a Member Facility for all of its members. RPost’s Registered Email™ technology provides senders with irrefutable proof of the content and timestamp disclosures were electronically delivered. RPost is a winner of the World Mail Award for Best in Security.

In addition, RPost has produced the “Tech Essentials” educational email briefing series which offers a series of emails and online videos informing members about best practices for secure and certified email communications for insurance professionals.

Registered Email™ and email encryption technologies by RPost are essential tools that are available to our members, enabling them to send safe and secure electronic communications, and which help to reduce the risk of cyber-crime,” comments Martin Bridges, FCII Chartered Insurance Practitioner, Technical Services Manager, British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).
