We are consulting about the current transitional arrangements of CTP insurance for the point to point industry which are set to expire in December 2020.

  • The Issue

    Consultation period: 13/11/2018 11:00 am to 21/12/2018 5:00 pm

    We are seeking feedback on issues that will be considered in the development of future Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance arrangements for the point to point industry ie beyond December 2020 when the current transitional arrangements are set to expire. The point to point industry refers to passenger services that are carried out in accordance with the Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Act 2016.

    Issues for discussion

    Three issues are explored in the Point to Point Horizon Scanning Issues Paper. These issues have been informed by presentations and discussions held at the Horizon Scanning Workshop conducted by SIRA in September 2018. The issues are:
