Motor Insurers Anti-Fraud and Theft Register (MIAFTR)
MIAFTR is a database containing records of written off and a stolen vehicles, as defined by the Code of Practice for the Disposal of Motor Vehicle Salvage. MIAFTR was designed and developed to help monitor vehicles written off for insurance purposes, to help trace and recover stolen vehicles and to help detect fraud.
Access to MIAFTR is limited to subscribers, of which there are approximately 300. These include insurers, self-insured compensators (eg fleet companies), police forces and delegated authorities working on behalf of an existing subscriber (eg an insurer).
Claims and Underwriting Exchange (CUE)
CUE is a central database of motor, home and personal injury/industrial illness incidents reported to insurance companies which may or may not have given rise to a claim. Information held on CUE is a powerful weapon in the fight against fraud.
CUE was established in 1994 to help fight insurance fraud. By enabling insurers to access details of incidents, it makes it harder to successfully commit claims fraud or misrepresent claims history. Ultimately, this helps to keep down the cost of insurance for honest policyholders.
CUE has been expanded to accept data relating to travel insurance claims with the launch of its new platform, CUE Travel. CUE Travel is the first central database of the industry’s claims and notifications for travel insurance policies. It has been developed to allow insurers to validate a policyholder’s travel claims history for both claims management and underwriting purposes. Insurers can make the most of this new platform by requesting a CUE subscriber pack by contacting CUETravel@mib.org.uk
