The ‘wear and tear’ exclusion found in machinery breakdown policies is not well understood in the insurance industry and has often been misconstrued.
In this paper, Malaysian Chartered Insurance Practitioner, Arbitrator and Mediator, Mr Ong Lim Fatt, presents a detailed case study that highlights the need for caution when interpreting this exclusion.
Machinery Breakdown : Exclusion 9 — Wear and Tear as Prescribed and not Otherwise, was published by the Malaysian Institute of Insurance (MII) publication, Insurance (July-Sept 2018 Issue 43).
The paper was also read at the General Insurance Association of Malaysia's Annual General Insurance knowledge Seminar — Engineering & Construction Risk, held at Kuala Lumpur on 28 June, 2018.
