Country Insurance Guides

These Insurance Guides on a country-by-country basis provide detailed information on local insurance requirements including compulsory coverages, legislation, supervision, non-admitted insurance, main classes, product information, and more.

In the international P&C business it's important to understand the lay of the land to comply with local regulations and laws. These Country Insurance Guides aim to keep you out of trouble.


Insurance Supervisors, Regulators, Associations by Country

The internet can display insurance glossaries but none provide both domestic and international terms in one place. My glossary does.

Socio-Economic Country Information
Telephone Codes & Times Zones Worldwide
World Travel Advisories

In a changing world the last thing a decision maker needs is out of date information on compliance, regulation and taxation aspects of their worldwide insurance protection. Penalties, fines, job losses and uncovered claims can result. ISN's Country Information provides up to date information clearly and concisely.

The ISN Country Insurance Guides provide my clients, team and firm with the local country compliance information that is critical to our being able to put together and provide legally compliant insurance programmes to our corporate clients and their local country subsidiaries.

Insurance is global. You need a guide to access resources. irletter.com is that source.

I find the ISN website is a great place for a wide range of information. It has deep country information in the Country Guides section–population, insurance regulations, etc, and I also use it for quick information checks. I love the Country and City Telephone Codes and Time Zones page(s). These are easy references for regularly checked info points.
