Opinion: David Sparkes on why delaying the Insurance Distribution Directive is a good thing

David Sparkes Biba

The European Commission’s proposal towards the end of December 2017 to delay the application date of the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) until 1 October 2018 is very welcome news for insurance brokers and their software houses. 

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (Biba) has been one of the parties that have been campaigning heavily on both sides of the English Channel to secure a delay and it is always rewarding to see progress for those efforts.
