In 1908 “Phoenix Assurance Co Ltd” also joined the Association.

Due to legal difficulties the Association was registered as a Union when its Articles were drafted in 1929. Today, the Articles are modified but still in effect. The Association’s action was multiple: it was represented in the Supervising Insurance Board and from 1929, in the Board of Commerce and Industry, that substituted the precedent, with a representative who expressed the opinion of the Association in insurance matters.
