All UK based BPA Platinum and Pearl and Gold Plus and Gold Extra members of the GoJD benefit from £5,000,000 Public and Products Liability (PPL) insurance through ArgoGlobal SE and other insurers.
The PPL insurance policy has been specifically designed for jewellery designer/makers and other craftworks and provides cover whilst the member is engaged in the following:
The designing, making, exhibition and sale of jewellery and other craftworks and the teaching of jewellery and craft making skills, demonstration, lecturing or teaching jewellery or craft workshops.
GoJD/BPA members with PPL insurance benefit from:
- A policy specially designed for jewellery designer/makers and other arts and crafts
- Worldwide cover (including the USA and Canada)
- £5m limit of indemnity
The PPL policy does not cover tools, contents or employers liability etc. but a tailored policy which includes these elements can be obtained through our insurance broker on request. A proposal form is available for download in the member account dashboard.
Public Liability Insurance in a nutshell!
Public Liability insurance protects the GoJD/BPA member from legal claims for compensation from organisations or other people where it is alleged that the member has caused or contributed to an accident which results in damage to property or injury in the course of their jewellery making or craftwork practice.
Products Liability Insurance in a nutshell!
Products Liability insurance protects the GoJD/BPA member from legal claims for compensation from other people or organisations for accidents, injury or damage to property caused by their supply of any product.
A product includes any jewellery or craftwork that has been supplied, made, altered or repaired by the GoJD/BPA member but the Products Liability Insurance does not cover loss or damage to products themselves.
Eligibility – Actively subscribing Odissa, GoJD Gold Plus and Gold Extra members and British Pearl Association Platinum and Pearl members.
