Implementation of deferred sales model for add-on insurance products

ASIC is consulting on its proposed Regulatory Guide and prescribed customer information for the deferred sales model for add-on insurance which will commence on 5 October 2021. Background.

The deferred sales model introduces a four-day pause between the sale of a principal product or service and the sale of an add-on insurance product.

The Regulatory Guide explains the scope of the deferred sales model, the obligations on add-on insurance providers and ASIC’s power to grant an individual exemption, and the content, form and communication of information that must be given to customers to start the deferral period.
