Liberty International Underwriters Adds
Manufacturers’ Errors and Omissions
Endorsement to its Product Recall Policy
November 08, 2010 09:10 AM Eastern Time
BOSTON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Normally sold as a stand-alone professional liability policy, the new
manufacturers’ errors and omissions (ME&O) endorsement from Liberty International Underwriters (LIU) marks
the first time this coverage can be included in a product recall policy. The new endorsement provides coverage for
situations where a third party suffers financial loss due to the insured’s manufacturing error.
With up to $5 million in limits, LIU’s new endorsement makes it easier for agents and brokers to help their clients
manage supply chain risks. The broader insurance policy also helps eliminate coverage gaps that can exist between
separate product recall and ME&O policies.
“By providing claims-made financial loss coverage for the insured’s manufacturing processes, this policy covers a
larger portion of a company’s manufacturing operations,” said Louis Lubrano, senior vice president of U.S. crisis
management for LIU. “We developed this unique endorsement to give agents and brokers a more expansive policy
to offer their clients. ”
LIU’s ME&O endorsement will cover claims made against the insured for financial loss of others such as loss of
profit, additional advertising expenses, shipping, restocking and other related expenses incurred due to the insured’s
manufacturing error or omission.
