In accordance with the decision of the General Meeting of the Polish Chamber of Insurance, the works of PIU are managed by an entirely professional management board.
Members of the Polish Insurance Association have also decided that the structure of PIU will be based on a corporate model. The Audit Committee will act as the supervisory board of PIU. The Committee supervises the works of PIU’s Management Board.
The Management Board performs its tasks via the Chamber’s Office. The Chamber’s Office provides factual and administrative servicing of the Management Board’s activities. Organisational regulations adopted by the Management Board determine the organisation and operational rules of the Chamber’s Office.
Permanent Committees, Subcommittees, Teams and Working Groups provide factual support for the Management Board and the Members of PIU.
