Since 1 January 2006, non-tied insurance intermediaries must be registered in a public register as specified in Article 43 para. 1 of the Insurance Supervision Act (ISA), while tied intermediaries have the right to be entered in the register (Art. 43 para. 2 ISA).
The circumstances under which insurance intermediaries are considered to be tied and are therefore not subject to compulsory registration are set out in Article 183 of the Insurance Supervision Ordinance (ISO).
