General Insurance Code of Practice
As a member of the Insurance Council of Australia, The Hollard Insurance Company has adopted the General Insurance Code of Practice (Code). The Code sets service standards in the insurance industry, improves the way that claims and complaints are handled, and helps customers better understand how general insurance works. The Code is monitored and enforced by an independent body, The Code Governance Committee (CGC).
For further information on the Code visit General Insurance Code of Practice. Information about the CGC can be found at insurancecode.org.au.
