• The Insurance Core Principles (ICPs) provide a globally accepted framework for the regulation of the insurance sector.

• The ICPs apply to the regulation of all insurers whether private or government-controlled insurers that compete with private enterprises, wherever their business is conducted, including through e-commerce.

• The application of individual ICPs and standards to insurance groups may vary and where appropriate, further guidance is provided under individual ICPs and standards.

• When implementing the ICPs and standards in a jurisdiction, it is important to take into account the domestic context, industry structure and developmental stage of the financial system and overall macroeconomic conditions.

• In India, the Insaurance Act, 1938 and IRDA Act, 1999, gives powers to Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority to regulate the insurance sector.
