Extract from the GOJ Combined Liability Insurance Policy
The GOJ does not hold a certificate of indemnity concerning electromagnetic fields and other related matters. There is however reference to ‘Exposure to Electro-Magnetic Fields’ indemnity limit in the 2019 Liability insurance policy schedule, which confirms that such matters are included within the Government of Jersey’s public liability insurance arrangements. A copy of that policy schedule is attached. Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied to minor amounts of personal data.
