Lloyd's Regulatory Tools
(Risk Locator Tool, Crystal, Stamp Decision Tool)

The suite of Regulatory Tools are brought to you by Lloyd’s International Trading Advice to provide quick and easy access to international regulatory and taxation requirements, guidance on identifying risk location and which stamp should be used on a policy.

The Lloyd’s Regulatory Tools assist the market in identifying risk location(s) and provide guidance to ensure risks are written and placed compliantly. The three tools are:

Risk Locator Tool

Provides general guidance on which territories (countries, states or provinces) should be considered for the purposes of regulatory and tax compliance when underwriting or placing a risk.

Crystal

A database containing international regulatory and taxation requirements for over 200 territories, for both Lloyd’s underwriters and Lloyd’s Europe.

Stamp Decision Tool

Enables underwriters to determine whether a policy should be underwritten by Lloyd’s underwriters and/or Lloyd’s Europe.

FAQs

You must be a Lloyd’s market participant (e.g. work for an active Lloyd’s managing agent or syndicate, a registered Lloyd’s broker, or an approved Lloyd’s coverholder) to access these resources. Coverholder auditors working for a Lloyd’s managing agent may receive access if the head managing agent compliance officer directly emails LITA@lloyds.com with approval. Other or non-market participants will not receive access.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide enhanced access to users registering with a personal email address (e.g. Google, Yahoo, etc) for a lloyds.com account.
