IMPRESS Member Insurance Scheme

Low cost professional indemnity insurance for publishing companies

IMPRESS members benefit from low-cost, flexible and comprehensive professional indemnity insurance cover which is specifically designed for media companies operating within the IMPRESS regulatory scheme. It offers very competitive rates because of the reduced liability to insurers of publishers participating in the IMPRESS regulatory scheme.

The IMPRESS Member Insurance Scheme:

  • Covers publishing companies for the costs and expenses of defending legal actions and pays for any penalties or damages which arise from an IMPRESS investigation, arbitration or action in the civil courts. It is designed to be very flexible and allows publishing companies to set their own liability limits, which in turn can reduce their annual insurance premium.
  • Is sold independently of IMPRESS by EC3 Brokers and is underwritten by media specialist insurers Beazley. IMPRESS receives no commission for introducing member publishers to EC3 Brokers, the insurance brokers who operate the scheme, and there is no requirement for IMPRESS members to be insured.

Annual premiums start at just over £200 for small publishing companies who require cover of £100,000. Cover of up to £100m is available if needed. The additional costs protection offered by the IMPRESS arbitration scheme offers publishers the opportunity to purchase lower levels of liability cover than would ordinarily be required if they operated outside the IMPRESS regulatory scheme.

Payment of the insurance premium can be via interest free direct debit over either 10 or 12 months.
