Crystal Assist: Take Our CPD Approved Tutorial

Crystal Assist provides an introduction to Lloyd's licences and the regulatory and fiscal requirements that need to be considered when writing international insurance business.

Tue 28 Oct 2014

Crystal Assist is delivered via an online tutorial followed by a short knowledge test that in total takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. Crystal Assist meets CII member CPD requirements and, upon successful completion of the knowledge test, offers a PDF certificate of completion.

It is important that Lloyd's market participants consider Lloyd's licences and regulatory and fiscal requirements when trading worldwide. Breaching international regulations and fiscal requirements can result in fines or other consequences for those involved in the placement and can ultimately impact the Lloyd's brand and reputation.

This tutorial will help Lloyd’s market participants understand regulation and taxation. Lloyd’s market participants may also find this tutorial useful to enable third party service providers, such as coverholder auditors, to familiarise themselves with international regulatory and taxation requirements.

In order to access Crystal Assist, you will need a account and access to Crystal and the Risk Locator Tool. Access to Crystal and the Risk Locator Tool is granted for Lloyd’s market participants only. If you are a third party service provider looking to access these tools, you currently must be providing services to a Lloyd’s managing agent. In these cases, the compliance officer of the managing agent must email with written approval for access by a third party service provider.
