About Us

Who we are:

The Motor Insurers’ Bureau of Ireland (MIBI) is a non-profit-making organisation registered in Ireland.  The company was established in 1955 by the then Government and those companies underwriting motor insurance in Ireland.  The first MIBI Agreement was signed in 1955 with the most recent Agreement signed in 2009 between the Minister for Transport and MIBI.

What we do:

Our principal role is to compensate victims of road traffic accidents caused by uninsured and unidentified vehicles which is regulated by the MIBI Agreement 2009.  This Agreement sets out the rights given to persons who sustain damage and/or injuries in a road traffic accident caused by an uninsured vehicle or unidentified vehicle.

We also act as Green Card Bureau in Ireland which ensures persons who sustain damage and/or injuries in a road traffic accident caused by a vehicle registered outside the State are not disadvantaged.  The Council of Bureaux Internal Regulations governs the investigation and settlement of such claims

MIBI operates the Motor Insurance Information Centre of Ireland (MIICI).   MIICI assists victims who have sustained damage and/or injuries in a road traffic accident by providing information on the insurer and, where applicable, the Claims Representative of the alleged offending vehicle.

As Compensation Body, which is provided for under EU Motor Insurance Directive 2000/26/EC, MIBI investigates claims made by Irish residents involved in a road traffic accident which has occurred in another EU Member State.

How are we funded?

 All companies underwriting motor insurance in Ireland must be members of MIBI, as provided for under Section 78 Road Traffic Act, 1961 and fund MIBI by means of payment of an annual levy contribution. Please click here for details of our current Member Companies. Current Members
