Industrial Special Risk Insurance (ISR)

Coverage Summary

An Industrial Special Risks (ISR) policy covers Section 1 - loss or damage to property of the insured at the declared locations. ISR policies are generally considered a broad cover as most causes of loss are insured, not just fire and theft.
Though many insureds focus on the costs associated with repairing the physically damaged building and content insured under an ISR policy, an ISR policy can also cover Section 2 - consequential or resulting loss due to a Business Interruption that is caused by the property damage insured by the policy. The general coverage for consequential loss can include cover for:

  • Loss of Turnover
  • Increased/Additional Increased Cost of Works
  • Payroll Costs
  • Claims Preparation Costs - Section 2
Additional Benefits

Whilst repairing or reinstating property following a loss, a standard ISR policy can include the following additional benefits:

  • Claims Preparation Costs - Section 1
  • Additional Government Fees to reinstate the loss
  • Costs incurred to mitigate further loss (i.e. Fire extinguishing costs, and temporary protection)
  • Removal of Debris
