On 15 December 2010, the Dutch Association of Insurers (in Dutch: Verbond van Verzekeraars) published its governance principles, also known as the ‘Insurers’ Code’. The Insurers’ Code is consistent with the basic tenets of the Banking Code published by the Dutch Banking Association (in Dutch: Nederlandse Vereniging van Banken). The Insurers’ Code sets out principles on corporate governance, risk management, audit and remuneration policy for application by Dutch insurers.
