Rule 7 Alteration of risk

1 Where after the conclusion of the contract of insurance circumstances occur which result in an alteration of the risk, the Member shall disclose such circumstances to the Association without undue delay.

2 Where there is an alteration of the risk which has been intentionally caused or agreed to by the Member and the Association would not have accepted the entry at the same Estimated Total Call if it had known of such an alteration prior to the conclusion of the contract of insurance, the Association is free from liability to the extent that the liability, loss, cost or expense incurred by the Member was caused or increased by the alteration. Where the Association would have accepted the entry at the same Estimated Total Call but on other conditions, the Association shall only be liable to the extent that it is proved that any liability, loss, cost or expense would have been covered under the conditions the Association would have accepted.
