CEO Declarations 

Declaration by insurers that they have controls in place to remove ESL from premiums

The Monitor has issued Guidelines on price exploitation in relation to the emergency services levy reform to make insurance companies accountable for removal of the Emergency Services Levy (ESL) when the reform occurs (anticipated 1 July 2017).  Paragraph 46 of The Guidelines states that the Chief Executive Officer of each insurance company “will be requested by the monitor to provide a signed declaration”…..”committing the company not to charge ESL on new policies issued or policies renewed from 1 July 2017, and not to anticipate removal of ESL prior to 1 July 2017 by increasing base premiums on this account alone.”   

The Monitor provided the declaration form to insurance companies on 5 December 2016. CEOs, or their authorised representative, were requested to sign the form, stating that the insurer has implemented internal controls designed to ensure that no ESL will be charged on new policies issued or renewed after the reform is implemented.  

The Guidelines also state that each commitment received will be published on the Insurance Monitor’s website.  The table below shows the responses received by the Insurance Monitor, as of 28 March 2017.

Whether an insurer's CEO has made a declaration is taken into account by the Monitor in determining risk-based compliance and enforcement activities.
