International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI)


The International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI) is a professional body which is run by and for its members. IUMI represents national and international marine insurers and considers issues of interest to the worldwide marine insurance industry. IUMI has a unique status in the world of marine and transport insurance. Its members are dedicated to maintaining and expanding global trade focusing both on developed and emerging markets.

 IUMI members acknowledge the importance of suitable training programmes and the demand for marine insurance educational tools. Only a well-educated next generation of underwriting and claims professionals will be in a position to address the challenges of markets. Hence, the establishment of a comprehensive training scheme was recognised as a core objective of IUMI’s activities.

 IUMI’s Education Forum was founded in September 2016. The Forum  comprises marine insurance experts from around the world who share ideas and advance IUMI’s education initiatives.

IUMI education programme aims to identify the needs of the global marine insurance industry and to develop and implement practical and valuable content for training purposes. There are five focus areas:

  1. Webinars on specific topics of interest
  2. Online tutorials, i.e. self-study courses
  3. In-class instruction: Planned for 2020
  4. Information about national education initiatives: Click "Education / Education Worldwide" to view programmes of various IUMI member associations.
  5. Online database to make content such as conference presentations, technical guidance papers, and general insurance clauses permanently accessible. Click "Education / Education Database" to access this information.
