Certificate of Currency

What is a Certificate of Currency or COC?

A Certificate of Currency is a document that confirms a current policy is in place as of the date of issue, and lists the details of the insurance policy.

It is often required by Third parties to provide evidence that you have the appropriate cover for the asset or business.

Here are some Third parties that may request a Certificate of Currency (sometimes described as Certificate of Insurance);

  • A bank or financier may require a Certificate of Currency in order to confirm that the item or business they have loaned money for is insured, so they can be reimbursed in the event of a loss.
  • An employer for a contractor may request a Certificate of Currency to confirm public liability cover for the contractor to ensure that if the contractor causes property damage or is involved in an event resulting in litigation between the employer business and another party, or the contractor themselves.
Proof of Insurance:

If you were previously issued a Proof of insurance, or requested to provide a Proof of Insurance, you can now request a Certificate of Currency in its stead.
