Police to be trained on ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme

The Ghana National Bureau of the ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme will on 22nd and 23rd August 2018 organize a two-day ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme Orientation Programme in Accra for over 120 Police officers of the MTTD.

Explaining the aim of the programme to the media, the Chief Executive Executive/General Secretary, Mr. Patrick K. Agyekum said: “The Police play a vital role in enforcing motor road traffic regulations, which equally applies to visiting motorists from member-states of ECOWAS. There is therefore need for the Police to gain good insight into the ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme”.

The objective of the Scheme is to ensure fair and prompt payment of compensation to victims of motor accident caused by foreign motorists visiting Ghana from other ECOWAS member-states. The Brown Card Insurance Scheme covers Third Party Liability for Injury, Death and Property Damage. The Scheme therefore guarantees compensation to third party victims of cross-border accidents, thereby leading to realization of the ECOWAS free movement objectives.

“The Ghana National Bureau therefore needs to offer a comprehensive orientation that educates our stakeholders in the whole country on matters of the Brown Card Insurance Scheme. The Bureau will organize similar programmes for staff of member insurance companies, CEOs of the Insurance and Brokerage companies, the Judiciary, Medical Doctors, Transporters and Transport Unions,” Mr. Agyekum added.
