NZILA/ICNZ Liability Insurance Discussion Group Webinar 

Date: 3 August 2022
Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Location: Online

COFI is officially a reality. What might this mean for insurance sector conduct, ethics, data, the handling of consumers and information?

The Financial Markets (Conduct of Institutions) Amendment Act 2022 became law on 29 June 2022 (to phase-in from 2023). Meanwhile, the Protected Disclosures Act has also come into force, and MBIE reforms on Consumer Data Rights and Insurance Contracts lurch forward separately too. How insurers treat customers matters more than ever before, and data and systems are coming under scrutiny like never before.

Regulatory expert Gary Hughes of Britomart Chambers will talk about Misconduct, Licensing, Whistleblowing, Internal Investigations, and what the FMA might do on Enforcement.

Tech & data expert Andrew Dentice of Hudson Gavin Martin will talk about Commercialising Data – the Opportunities and Risks (including a look ahead to the proposed new Consumer Data Right)

Brad Alcorn, Special Counsel at Fee Langstone
Brad will discuss bullying and harassment in the workplace and the current approach employed by WorkSafe. He will discuss examples of WorkSafe’s investigations of bullying and harassment as well as investigations and prosecutions undertaken by WorkSafe’s equivalents in other jurisdictions.

Ellie Harrison, Senior Associate at Wynn Williams
Looking at two trials concerning corporate recklessness in the health and safety context (one successful; one unsuccessful although under appeal), Ellie will cover the regulators’ approaches, judicial decisions and implications for underwriters.

Edwin Boshier, Senior Associate at Duncan Cotterill
Edwin will discuss the increasing pressures that prosecutions under the Health and Safety at Work Act are putting on statutory liability policies, and some issues to which insurers need to be alert. He will take us through the recent Ocean Fisheries case, discuss the prospect of director and officer charges becoming more common, and look at some cases which suggest an increasing willingness of defendants to resist charges or to seek alternatives to the more orthodox sentence of a conviction and fine. All of these have implications for insurers, with liability limits and certain exclusions becoming increasingly relevant.

Two speakers who are very familiar with the issues presented by the RMA.
Firstly, former Court of Appeal Judge Tony Randerson QC and chair of the Resource Management Review Panel will provide his views on the proposed reforms and the legislation intended to replace the RMA.
Then Patrick Lynch, Waikato Regional Council’s Manager – Regional Compliance, will share some examples of the practical difficulties of trying to enforce compliance with the RMA.
