2022 RICS Approved Minimum Wording

The RICS minimum policy wording is unchanged for 2022.

The RICS UK PII Requirements have been updated to reflect a change to the excess requirements. Following consultation, the excess requirements for larger firms have been removed, whilst the 2.5% maximum excess requirements for smaller firms remains. The turnover limit above which there will be no excess requirements is set at £10m.
