The IUA’s Aviation Technical Committee (ATC) exists to promote sound principles for the best practice of aviation and aerospace business. It represents the interests of member companies on aviation matters and acts as a medium for the circulation of information and advice. In addition, the IUA is represented on two cross market bodies: the Aviation Insurance Clauses Group (AICG) and the Aviation Liaison Forum (ALF). The AICG proposes and publishes aviation policy wordings and clauses in the London Market. It is made up members nominated by the IUA’s Aviation Technical Committee and the Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) Aviation Committee, together with representatives from the EU aviation industry. Meanwhile the ALF acts as a liaison forum between the IUA’s Aviation Technical Committee and the LMA Aviation Committee on subjects of common interest, for example technical, regulatory, legal and procedural issues.
A junior aviation underwriting group is also operated by the IUA for practitioners with less than eight years market experience. This group supports members with education and training events and enables them to develop a network of business contacts.
