The Slovak Insurance Bureau is a legal entity established by the Act of the National Council of the Slovak Republic No. 381/2001 Coll. on compulsory contractual insurance of liability for damage caused by the operation of a motor vehicle and on amendment and supplementation of certain acts.
One of our main tasks as the Slovak Insurance Office is to administer the insurance guarantee fund, from which damages caused by uninsured vehicles are covered.
As the Slovak Insurers' Bureau, we also keep a register of liability insurance and carry out border insurance. We represent insurers in international institutions dealing with liability insurance, conclude agreements with insurers' offices of foreign states, entities responsible for compensation of damages in the Member States, information centres of the Member States, and provide the tasks resulting from these agreements.
We cooperate with state authorities in matters relating to liability insurance, participate in the prevention of damage in road transport and carry out the activities of an information centre. To this end, we keep a liability insurance register at the request of the injured party and, on the basis of the data provided by the injured party, provide information on how to assert and settle his or her claim for compensation.
Last but not least, we provide the information needed in particular in the event of accidents, namely whether the party involved in the accident has compulsory insurance and with which insurer.
"SKP is an indispensable supplement to the traditional insurance sector. It protects all citizens – road users by covering damages, in the event that it is not possible to compensate the normal insurance premiums with contractual terms. Our mission is not carried out for the purpose of profit, but to create and maintain the values of transparent security and help and provided not only material but also informational services to our citizens."
