Joint Loss Agreement Clause

A substantial change relates to damages in the event of a late payment, which came into effect for all insurance and reinsurance policies that are regulated by English law and which were adopted after 4 May 2017. A new clause, point 2.2, excludes the reinsurer`s liability in the event of a late payment to be paid by reinsurers due to the insured`s unreasonable late payment. However, a new supplementary clause B offers policyholders the opportunity to acquire a limited buyback of this coverage (despite its title, the buyback of the cover is quite broad). The starting point is that all rights to the insured`s liability to third parties are excluded, subject to an insurance claim. LEC B, version of 2003, made claims under the original guidelines on the basis of claims or losses discovered; The 2017 version adds to the list of policies regarding events that reflect changes in the industry, but on the same condition that the notification of injury or event is made during the period of the directive. This is an optional exclusion that excludes coverage of cyberattacks, i.e. covers policies that would otherwise afford cyber losses if the losses result from the use of a computer device “as a means of adding damage.” These words come from CL380, the exclusion clause of the Institute for Cyberattacks. This is an optional exclusion in the JELC clauses and not in the main part of the text, perhaps to reflect the fact that the sea and energy policy does not always contain CL 380 or adopts the modified language CL 380, thus avoiding a potential gap between the cyber coverage granted by the underlying policy and the XL policy. This exclusion has been removed from the main sentence and has become an optional clause that excludes coverage of losses, etc., caused or resulting from the use or operation of computer equipment. Although such clauses are present in other insurance sectors, they are the most common in marine insurance for mortgage vessel insurance.

[Citation required] In practice, these clauses are usually added in a separate endorsement at the end of existing policies after they have been negotiated between the insurer and the lender. If the law or settlement of a country, with the exception of sanctions, prohibits or prevents the performance of part of the contract or the transfer of a payment, this clause provides that, in these circumstances, the restricted party informs the other party who suspends the payment until the circumstances change, subject to the other party`s right to terminate the contract or suspend coverage of the business line concerned. Once the insured is full, the insurance agencies continue to arbitration until two out of three arbitrators agree on the division of responsibility. The insurer found that the most responsible companies must reimburse the other carrier the difference between the 50 percent already paid and their actual liability, plus the liquidated damages. Liquidated damages are designed by multiplying the highest first rate applicable to the effective date of the agreement by 1.5. This percentage is applied during the arbitration period (“liquidized damages period”). A new clause on security risks has been introduced. It defines a computer risk as “loss or deterioration or a reduction or modification of the functionality or operation of a computer device.” Computer risk aggregation is not permitted, but the clause allows aggregation resulting from certain defined physical hazards, z.B.dem sinking of a ship, regardless of whether a computer risk was also a major cause of the loss.
