Lloyd’s is consulting on a proposed new approach to third party oversight (primarily relating to coverholders and TPAs).  We believe these changes will modernise our current arrangements, support reduced compliance costs, reflect modern distribution methods and allow us to take a more risk-based approach to oversight.


We are consulting on the proposed framework and on the required amendments to our byelaws and related requirements.  In due course we will publish more detailed rule updates, to be set out in a revised ‘Code of Practice – Delegated Authority’.  Those new rules will implement some of the changes we outline in the consultation.


To support the changes, starting in the summer, Lloyd’s will also be rolling out its new integrated, online compliance system, known as Chorus.  This will replace the current ATLAS and BAR systems.  Chorus is being delivered as part of the LM TOM programme and the programme team will work with user firms to aid adoption.
