Organisation

The pool is organized as a distribution pool, which means that it is the companies themselves who have all contact with their policy holders, and the pool only equalises losses.

The Pool comprises:

  • A Board consisting of 8 members with personal deputies. The Board supervises the Pool's activities.
  • The loss committee with 5 members from the 4 largest companies. Responsible for the companies handling of losses and that all claims are equalised correctly.
  • The reinsurance committee advises the Board on reinsurance matters, and an administration.

Foreign companies

Because of the EEA agreement, as of 1993 other companies can write insurance in the Norwegian market. As soon as a company has begun writing fire insurance in Norway, they are obliged to become members of the pool. If it is the other way around, a Norwegian policyholder wants to write its fire insurance in another country, it has to pay a fee to the pool as long as the foreign insurance company is not a member of the pool. The fee is calculated in the same way as the premium (0.07 0/00 of the sum insured) but gives no compensation in case of an incident/accident.
