Turkish P&I was established to meet liability insurance requirements of Turkish maritime interests which arise under Insurance Law no. 5684, enacted on 31.12.2013. A major purpose of this law is to establish a framework which legally compels Turkish interests to carry liability insurance for risks which are deemed mandatory to be insured under Turkish Laws & Regulations.

Laws and regulations enacted in Turkey in the last few years made it compulsory for majority of maritime interests in Turkey to carry P&I insurance, thus Turkish P&I was brought into existence to assist shipowners in having easier access to P&I insurances, which is deemed a speciality marine insurance product.
