Insurance consultant permission

A permit is required for the work of an insurance consultant and issued by the competent authority. An entry in the intermediary register is necessary. At the same time, an application for registration in the register of intermediaries may be submitted to the competent body by applying for permission as an insurance consultant. The obligation to provide information applies to holders of the permit. At the first business contact, certain information must therefore be provided to the customer. Mandatory information is e.B. name and address of the insurance adviser, statement whether certain insurance policies are represented (insurance representation), or whether insurance is mediated (brokerage activity), or whether to advise on insurance (insurance advice) Without permission, an insurance consultant may mediate in particular in the following cases: Advice on insurance is minor as a part-time acquisition ("bagatell vermittler"). Advice is provided only as a supplement to another activity. Special features for foreign nationals Foreign nationals established in another Member State of the European Union (EU) must register in that country. They do not need a permit in Germany, nor can they be registered in the German insurance intermediary register. Foreign nationals from non-EU countries are subject to the same rules as German nationals. These also apply to EU nationals who register a corresponding trade only in Germany. General provisions on foreign law must be complied with. If certain German training courses are sufficient to prove their expertise, comparable evidence from the European Economic Area (EEA) is considered equivalent.
