In February, CIRC released the Regulation on the Basic Service of the Personal Insurance Business (“the Regulation”).
The insurance industry, especially personal insurance business is experiencing a rapid and healthy development in the recent years. However, the phenomenon that the insurance companies give much weigh on the underwriting rather than the indemnity, has become more and more severe. This phenomenon has impeded the further development of the industry. In order to solve such problem, some local bureau of CIRC drafted related regulations, which have received positive effects, but the differences among the regions also incur problems for insurance companies to establish uniform internal regulations. The promulgation of the Regulation is CIRC’s response to such problems.
