Gender Equality, The Charter of Fundamental Rights & Insurance Premiums and Benefits

Case C-236/09 TEST ACHATS

5th April 2011

On 1 March the ECJ decided in case C-236/09, Association belge des Consommateurs Test-Achats ASBL and Others v Conseil des Ministres, that taking the gender of the insured individual into account when determining insurance premiums and benefits was, in principle, discriminatory and contrary to EU law. It declared the relevant derogation in Directive 2004/13 to be invalid and relied, in part, on the Charter of Fundamental Rights, in reaching that conclusion.

The UKAEL invite you to an evening seminar to discuss the implications of the case, including the development of the principle of equality, particularly in the insurance industry, the role of the Charter, and the role of the ECJ.
