A company with total value of risks of at least RM50 million has an alternative to protect its insurance needs with the Industrial All Risks (IAR) Insurance as compared to the traditional Fire Insurance and its related Consequential Loss Insurance.
As the name suggests, IAR policy is an "all risks" form of insurance which cover not only all the "named perils" of Fire Insurance but also extend to cover "accidental damage" which could not be covered under the fire insurance, subject only to specific exclusions of the policy
- Theft of equipment, plant & machinery and all contents including stocks of every description kept at Insured's premises can be covered under the IAR policy instead of a separate Burglary Insurance.
- Equipment of plant & machinery in transit within the premises is covered under the IAR policy.
- Accidental damage to plate glass or any fragile item or to movable equipment e.g. forklift, hoist, crane etc by collision or overturning or impact is covered under the IAR policy (but not the Fire Policy).
- Other accidental damage not specifically excluded from the Policy.
