The insurance and claims history certificate includes information about the period of validity of your motor liability insurance policies and claims compensated under them. Among other things, this information affects the pricing of motor liability insurance in accordance with the terms and conditions of the insurance company concerned.
When a Finnish person changes his or her vehicle or Finnish insurance company, the insurance and claims history data is transmitted between the respective insurance companies by means of an electronic system. The policyholder is not required to take any action to transfer the insurance and claims history data.
Finnish insurance companies also accept foreign insurance and claims history certificates. A certificate on the validity of a foreign insurance policy and any claims compensated under it must be provided when taking out an insurance. In most cases, the foreign certificate can also be delivered electronically.
The Finnish Motor Insurers' Centre prepares the insurance and claims history certificate of behalf of its member companies. Our member companies include all insurance companies that grant motor liability insurance policies in Finland.
