The IUA’s Liability Underwriters' Group aims to improve levels of knowledge in the market surrounding the writing of liability business; in particular Employers’ Liability, Public Liability, Products Liability, Umbrella Liability, Financial Loss, Products Guarantee/Recall and any other classes that would have an impact upon the Liability market. The group promotes sound principles for and best practice of liability insurance. It represents IUA members’ interests to regulatory and governmental bodies as required, provides a forum for discussion and is a medium for the circulation of advice and information.

An annual conference is held for the Liability Underwriters' Group. Details and presentation slides from past events are available via the Insurance Market Conferences website.
