  • Covers primarily mobile construction plant and machinery against risks of external damage (e.g. accidents on site) and theft
  • Plant can be underwritten on "New Replacement Value" and "Market Value"

Electronic Equipment Insurance (EEI)

  • Covers electronic/computer equipment against risks of external damage (e.g. dropping, impact), breakdown and theft
  • Loss of profits as a consequence of machine downtime can be covered

EE Insurance Defined Events

“Physical loss of or damage to the equipment described in the schedule from any cause not hereinafter excluded whilst contained anywhere within the Insured’s premises as specified."

Contract All Risk Insurance (CAR)

  • Covers building, civil and mechanical engineering projects against risks during construction or erection (e.g. flooding, fire or explosion, theft)
  • Also covers Third Party Liability risks

CAR Defined Events

"If during the period of Insurance any of the Property Insured shall suffer at the contract site any unforeseen physical loss or damage from any cause other than those specifically excluded the Company will in terms of the basis of loss settlement clause of the definitions contained herein compensate the Insured for such loss or damage up to an amount not exceeding in respect of each of the items specified in the Schedule the sum set opposite thereto and in all the Total Sum Insured."

Erection All Risks Insurance (EAR)

EAR policies are designed to cover the risk of loss arising out of the erection and installation of machinery, plant and steel structures, including physical damage to the contract works and liability for third party bodily injury or property damage arising out of these operations. Covered parties include the general contractor, subcontractors, and in some cases suppliers and manufacturers of equipment. Examples of the types of projects for which EAR coverage is typically purchased include power plants, manufacturing and fabrication facilities, water and wastewater treatment facilities, and telecommunications centres (particularly where the erection of signal towers is involved). Some insurers combine erection all risks and contractors all risks coverages into one form. Although these terms are sometimes used interchangeably, there are some substantive differences.


Please note that this is a summary of the cover available. Where applicable, extensions mentioned above can be increased at an additional premium. Cover provided, terms and conditions, excess amounts and exclusions of cover are contained in the relevant CIB policy wording or schedule.
