BioIS study on feasibility of creating an EU industrial accident fund

Insurance Europe welcomes the invitation to contribute to the BioIS Study to explore the feasibility of creating a fund to cover environmental liability and losses occurring from industrial accidents (herein referred to as “the BioIS study”). By way of invitation from the European Commission (EC), we submit these comments outlining Insurance Europe’s views and concerns in lieu of a response to BioIS’s related questionnaire. Our comments also reflect the preliminary findings of BioIS’s Background Document for the related workshop held by the EC on 7 November 2012 (herein referred to as “BioIS’s Background Document”).
