CTP Open Data tool available
The State Insurance Regulatory Authority has launched the CTP Open Data tool to give motorists, general public and industry stakeholders access to key data about the CTP scheme.
The data shows how the scheme is operating and how insurance companies are performing.
This online interactive data tool allows users to view information about Green Slip premiums, claims performance, and payments by individual insurers across selected time periods. It also enhances transparency and accountability and helps monitor and improve insurer performance.
The CTP Open Data tool will be updated with relevant information about the scheme throughout 2020.
