ICOB 5.6 White labelling

ICOB 5.6.1G

The rules in this chapter and in ICOB 4 (Advising and selling standards) require the customer to be informed of the identity of both the insurance undertaking and the insurance intermediary. ICOB 2.2.3 R (Clear, fair and not misleading communication) requires all communications with customers to be clear, fair and not misleading. ICOB 5.5.5 R (Policy summary content) includes the name of the insurance undertaking but not that of the insurance intermediary and ICOB 5.5.1 R does not allow any information to be added to the policy summary in addition to that specified in ICOB 5.5.1 R. The combined effect of these rules is that an insurance intermediary must clearly communicate the identity of the insurance undertaking to the customer.
