Aviation sub-committees and forums

The LMA Aviation Committee has responded to the Market’s requests to look into particular areas of interest and has subsequently formed several sub-committees.  Each sub-committee reports into the main LMA Aviation Committee at the monthly meetings. 
Each sub-committee or Forum operate within the LMA Competition Compliance Guidelines.

The sub-committees and a brief description of their scopes are as follows:

LMA Aviation Technical Forum

The Forum was established in order to liaise with the appropriate bodies from the International Underwriting Association (IUA) and London and International Insurance Brokers Association (LIIBA) on technical issues where a collective view would be beneficial to stakeholders, clients, Governments and Regulators.  It also provides a platform for the discussion of technical issues relating to model clauses and wordings under discussion within the Aviation Insurance Clauses Group (AICG).

From time to time the LMA membership request detailed information regarding implications of certain issues within the aviation/aerospace sector which this Forum provide the expertise to deliver. 

The Forum also works to develop LMA model wordings and/or model agreements by consulting with practitioners from within the Market and externally persons or organisations as appropriate.  This promotes the highest level of market efficiency and standards for the benefit of LMA members and other parties.
