REP019-General Insurance – Value Measures Report
As a result of new FCA rules relating to insurer ‘value measures reporting’ for most consumer insurance products, the FCA has added a new RegData return (REP019) to each firm’s reporting schedule.
For most insurance intermediaries, the REP019 report will be a simple ‘nil’ return, because it is only relevant to an intermediary which:
Even then, there are other criteria which would need to be satisfied before a firm would need to submit any data.
Additionally, you will need to be aware that only the RegData Principal User has access to the new REP019 report. Therefore, if a consultant (or another user within your firm) is to submit it for you, the Principal User will need to log in to RegData and grant permission for the consultant / other user to be able to access and submit the REP019.
If you think you will have consumer business lines that are potentially reportable, please contact us for guidance. This new report must be submitted by 28 February 2022 to avoid FCA action (including a £250 admin fee) for a missed reporting deadline.
