The Political Forum is tasked with the responsibility of identifying and monitoring framework related issues of interest to the global marine insurance industry and to propose possible actions and IUMI positions as appropriate. The Forum works closely with the Technical Committees, Member Associations, Affiliates and other industry partners, and reports directly to the Executive Committee.
The Political Forum publishes a list of current issues with information about all ongoing activities. The issues are selected in view of influencing, supporting or monitoring regulatory discussions and policy actions that reduce risk, support risk carriers and support the international marine (re)insurance market. Position papers are published on several of these issues to clarify the view of marine insurers.
