It contains information regarding the rules governing the operation of an authorized insurer as well those related to the carrying on of insurer activities, including disclosure requirements and guidelines. The guidelines are the measures that, in the AMF’s opinion, may be taken to satisfy the legal obligations regarding sound and prudent management practices and sound commercial practices.
