General:

Arising from the implementation, in Ireland, in 2003, of the 4th EU Motor Insurance Directive MIBI was designated as Motor Insurance Information Centre of Ireland (MIICI) by the Minister for Transport. This provides that persons involved in a road traffic accident, in an EU Member State other than their country of residence, may apply to MIICI to establish the identity of the insurer of the alleged offending vehicle.  Once established details of the insurer, including the insurer’s Claims Representative in Ireland, will be passed to the enquirer.  The Claims Representative will then handle the claim on behalf of the insurer. 

The 5th EU Motor Insurance Directive, which came into force in 2008, extended the role of MIICI to include all accidents which have occurred in the EC, including Ireland.

If you have been involved in an accident in Ireland or in another EC Member State and wish to establish the identity of the insurer of the alleged offending vehicle, click here to download the Information Centre Enquiry Form. This Form should be returned to us, either by email or post, and must include the following information:

  • Date of Accident
  • Registration number of the alleged offending vehicle
  • Country of Accident
  • Your own contact details

If your enquiry relates to an incident in another EU Member State MIICI will contact the Information Centre in the State where the responsible vehicle is registered to obtain details of insurance. That Information Centre will establish the identity of the insurer or alternatively advise if the vehicle was uninsured and in such cases provide details of the registered owner of the vehicle. Where the vehicle is insured details of the insurers’ Claims Representative in Ireland are also provided. 

If your enquiry relates to an accident in Ireland MIICI will establish the identity of the Irish insurer or alternatively advise if the vehicle was uninsured.

If you are visiting Ireland from another Member State and are involved in a motor accident in Ireland you should contact your local Information Centre in your country of residence.

If you are not resident in Ireland and have been involved in an accident either in your home country or elsewhere you must contact your local Information Centre or Green Card Bureau, whichever is appropriate, who will deal with your enquiry.
