Course Purpose:


The Insurance Distribution Directive or IDD is designed to improve European Union regulation in the insurance market by ensuring a level playing field among all participants that sell insurance products, to strengthen policyholder protection and to make it easier for firms to trade cross-border. The IDD repealed and replaced the Insurance Mediation Directive 2002/92/EC, with Member States being required to comply with the IDD by 23 February 2018.

This half day course aims to provide participants with an understanding of the basis, scope and main provisions of the IDD including analysis of the increased protections for consumers. The course will also provide participants with an understanding on how to practically implement the requirements.


Course Content:

  • Additional knowledge and competency requirements for distributors;
  • Product oversight and governance requirements (target market);
  • An Insurance Product Information Document (IPD) for non-life products;
  • Disclosures around product bundling;
  • Additional disclosure requirements in relation to insurance based investment products;

  • Directors (Executive & Non Executive)
