Canterbury Earthquakes Insurance Tribunal Bill submission

Submission | NZ | October 2018 | Accessible to everyone

Resolution Institute supports the key proposition of the Bill, namely to provide efficient resolution of earthquake insurance disputes, including provision for mediation to resolve disputes.

Mediation has proved to be a successful approach for resolution of disaster insurance disputes, both in relation to the Canterbury earthquakes, and internationally.

We note the recent launch of the Greater Christchurch Claims Resolution Service, and hope that the service will see cases resolved through facilitation (mediation) and fewer cases proceed to the Tribunal.
