Korea Biotechnology Organization Endorses Chubb

Stocks in this article: CB

WARREN, N.J., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chubb Group of Insurance Companies is now an insurer of choice for member companies of the Korean Biotechnology Industry Organization (Korea BIO), the country's leading biotechnology trade association.

As part of this endorsement, Chubb will work with Korea BIO to create educational seminars for association members on converging technology, regulations, claim and litigation trends, and best risk management practices. Chubb specialists also will speak at Korea BIO events and write articles for the association's newsletter on topics such as human clinical trials and product liability insurance.

"We are pleased to provide Chubb with this endorsement. Chubb has demonstrated it understands the risks that life sciences companies face, and through educational programs and tailored loss prevention and insurance solutions, Chubb helps Korea BIO members mitigate their exposures," said Kwang Koo Hwang, Korea BIO's vice president.

"We are honored to receive this endorsement from Korea BIO as we continue to expand our presence in the Korean life sciences market," said Kurtis Jang, country manager for Chubb's Korean operations. "It's highly unusual for a trade association in Korea to endorse one company.  Korea BIO's endorsement recognizes Chubb's industry expertise and commitment to this market."

Chubb provides an enterprise-wide approach to helping life sciences firms, including biotechnology, medical device, pharmaceutical, dietary supplement and product development organizations, protect themselves from property and liability exposures. The insurer offers a variety of specialized insurance products and loss control solutions that can respond to loss or damage to property; loss of milestone payments due to property loss or damage; and errors and omissions that can manifest into future bodily injury. Chubb's WORLDcert, a proprietary online system, instantly generates certificates of insurance in 152 countries to help drug and medical device developers and clinical research organizations expedite receipt of accurate insurance documentation, a prerequisite for a medical institution's ethics committee's approval to allow a trial to begin. Chubb has been the Biotechnology Industry Organization's endorsed BIO Business Solutions provider of property and casualty insurance in the United States since 1998; 40 state and regional biotechnology associations also endorse the Chubb /BIO program.
