Guild Insurance Schemes Overview of General Insurance The Guild holds general third party insurance with coverage of €6.5 million. The insurance is designed to cover sanctioned Guild events only and each event MUST be sanctioned in advance by submitting a "Request to Run Chapter Event" form at least six weeks before the event. The form should be sent directly to the Guild Honorary Secretary. Occasionally the Executive Committee issue an Insurance directive in order to keep the membership informed of a change, clarification etc.

The IWG no longer offers the optional individual members insurance for product liability, teaching and 3rd Party visits to their workshop. We are not in a position to recommend personal insurances because people have to assess their own insurance needs and purchase what is appropriate for them. We have identified the following companies which provide this service but there are others out there. Members have used these in the past and found them to be ok.
