Karol Manys a spokesperson of the Ministry of Digital Affairs told the Radio Information Agency that insurers will get access to the Central Records of Vehicles and Drivers (CEPiK 2.0) at the end of March 2018.
“We have talked about this issue. As the implementation of CEPiK 2.0 has progressed by stages in order to precipitate it, currently we determine that the probable date of implementation is the end of March 2018. We assume that insurers will have access to the Central Records of Vehicles and Drivers at the end of March 2018. Obviously, they will able to use only the information included in the records which is necessary for them” – said Karol Manys.
The Polish Insurance Association (PIU) has demanded an access to information about drivers. The association raised this argument in a special open letter to the Prime Minister and during a meeting of insurance institutions about the high prices of MTPL insurance.
The Financial Ombudsman Aleksandra Wiktorow agreed with PIU’s position. According to her, drivers who regularly violate driving rules cause more serious danger than young drivers, so they should pay higher MTPL insurance premiums. Also, as Aleksandra Wiktorow said, insurers should have access to information about their clients such as fines received. In the financial Ombudsman’s opinion, if bad drivers have more expensive MTPL insurance, it will encourage them to drive more safely.
