Norway Insurance Industry Governance, Risk and Compliance Report 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 18, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 18, 2019--

The “Governance, Risk and Compliance - The Norwegian Insurance Industry” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Governance, Risk and Compliance - The Norwegian Insurance Industry is the result of extensive research into the insurance regulatory framework in Norway. It provides detailed analysis of the insurance regulations for life, property, motor, liability, personal accident and health, and marine, aviation and transit insurance. The report specifies various requirements for the establishment and operation of insurance and reinsurance companies and intermediaries.

The Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanstilsynet - FSA) of Norway under the Ministry of Finance supervises and regulates the Norwegian insurance industry. The FSA regulates the insurance industry according to rules and regulations specified in the Financial Corporations Law 2015, the Insurance Act 2005 and the Insurance Contracts Act 1989. These Acts apply to insurance and reinsurance companies, except the Insurance Contracts Act.

There is no separate legislation for reinsurance operations. The FSA was established to govern and supervise various segments of the financial sector, such as banking, insurance, debt securities and accounting. The main responsibility of the FSA is to protect the rights and interests of policyholders and generate confidence in the financial market. It is also responsible for the general administration of legislations governing the finance industry. The FSA also plays an advisory role to the Ministry of Finance.

The report brings together research, modeling and analysis expertise, giving insurers access to information on prevailing insurance regulations, and recent and upcoming changes in the regulatory framework, taxation and legal system in the country. The report also includes the scope of non-admitted insurance in the country.
