Chartis has expanded its Passport service platform to enable multinationals to access locally compliant Errors & Omissions (E&O) liability / Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance in 18 additional countries and jurisdictions.

In addition, multinationals now have streamlined access through Passport to seven professional services, including media and advertising, in a total of 39 countries and jurisdictions.

The newly expanded Passport platform facilitates in Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Chile, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Macau, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea and the Beijing province of China.

The expanded access adds to the 18 countries and three Chinese provinces where Passport has already been available for E&O / PI policyholders. In each country and jurisdiction, local E&O / PI coverage can be customized for various services, including advertising, media, technology, real estate agencies, travel agencies, staffing and recruitment agencies, and claims adjusting agencies, said the company.

Launched in 2007, Chartis’ Passport service platform allows policyholders to obtain E&O / PI insurance aligned with local laws, regulations and customs worldwide.

Chartis International international professions manager Ian Pollard said, this enhanced platform will provide Chartis customers with better access to local insurance coverage regardless of where they operate.
