What insurance cover should an organisation in this sector require/consider?
Under section 13 of the Architects Act 1997 ("the Act") the Architects Registration Board (ARB) are required to issue a code laying down the standards of professional conduct and practice expected of persons registered as architects under the Act. Under Standard 8 of the Act, registered architects are required to have adequate and appropriate insurance cover.

Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) provides insurance for legal costs and expenses in defending a claim, and any compensation or costs that may subsequently be awarded.

In addition to this, organisations should also consider:
  • Directors & Officers Liability Insurance
  • Outside Board Insurance
  • Employment Practices Liability Insurance
  • Cyber Liability Insurance
  • Trustees Liability Insurance
  • Environmental Insurance
Note: Some of these insurances are compulsory and are driven by local legislation governing the regulation of Legal Practices. >> Willis Towers Watson services
