Risk Rating System (RRS)

A tool for grading the Commercial and Industrial risks on an international scale based on good engineering practices, risk management, safety procedures and various other parameters...

The ongoing process of globalization of market coupled with the advancements in Information Technology is transforming the world into one small global village. This current change has brought in the need for large commercial and industrial enterprises to re-look at the various risks to which they are exposed to and evaluate the effectiveness of their current risk management practices to match the best national and international practices.

To meet this growing demand, GIC Re has introduced the Risk Rating System including PML assessment, which is designed to answer this need of the corporate entities. This system is tuned to be effectively used as a tool for getting better favourable treatment while arranging for insurance/reinsurance protections.

The Benefits that could flow are:

  • Organizations can benchmark their risk management practices against the best National/International practices.
  • Higher rating achieved will prompt financial institutions to readily extend enhanced support from shareholders for corporate initiatives.
  • Companies that qualify for excellent risk management rating are bound to excel in their area of operations and would become the pride of the nation.


Essentially the rating would be based on an in-depth study and physical inspection of the risk. Rating System would incorporate Risk Index Factors for various elements of risk management practices such as Management Policies & Practices, Hazard Identification & Control, Disaster Management & Business Continuity, Risk Financing etc. This concept is applicable to all types of industries and will base on good engineering practices and international norms. The GIC Risk Management team would issue a certificate grading the risk on a predefined scale. GIC Re would then give a priority cognizance to the certificate while quoting for Reinsurance terms.
