All practices regulated by the CLC must, as a condition of being licensed, have in place professional indemnity insurance (PII) to indemnify them for civil liability incurred arising out of regulated services provided. The CLC runs a Participating Insurers Agreement and CLC regulated practices can seek cover from any insurer that is part of this scheme. This arrangement was put in place in June 2016. Among other things, it sets out a minimum level of cover of £2 million for each and every claim. It also ensures six years run-off cover at no additional cost when a practice closes with cover of £2 million in aggregate.
