General Star Management Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of General Reinsurance Corp., has announced the availability of commercial general liability (CGL) coverage specifically designed to protect manufacturers, distributors and operators of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
In addition, contingent coverage for UAS operations conducted on behalf of the insured is available.
General Star says coverage for aircraft collision and privacy violations is included for manufacturers, distributors and operators. Written on an occurrence basis, the new protection contains no or nominal deductibles, the firm says.
“We are pleased to provide our wholesale clients with a policy designed to address the unique hazards and exposures associated with one of today’s top emerging trends – drones,” says Liana Tufariello, underwriter and project leader for General Star.
Coverage is provided on a non-admitted basis by General Star Indemnity Co., an eligible surplus lines insurer in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
