COVID 19 - SDC Emergency trading protocols

Read the SDC Guidance for Lloyd’s Brussels submissions.

The Lloyd’s Emergency Trading Protocol (ETP) provides temporary permission to Managing Agents to agree lines on placements by email – the ‘email agreement’.

The use of SDC is mandated for business placed with Lloyd’s Brussels. This communication provides guidelines to support the submission of policies to Lloyd’s Brussels, via the SDC Service, where the email agreement is necessary. Please note these guidelines are for documents submitted into the SDC Service outside PPL, and without a ‘wet stamp’.
