The Employers' Liability Tracing Office (ELTO) is an independent industry body. Its voluntary members comprise of insurers who provide Employers' Liability insurance.

ELTO’s aim is to assist the insurance industry to meet its obligations by aiding those who have suffered injury or disease in the workplace to effectively and efficiently trace the relevant insurer.

Your role, as a broker, is to provide insurers with the necessary policy information to populate the Employers' Liability Database (ELD).

The initial mandatory data we submit to ELTO will be the:

  • policy number
  • policyholder name
  • policyholder address
  • cover start date (for the latest period of cover)
  • cover end date (for the latest period of cover). 

This should be information that is already provided to us as part of our normal business transactions with you.

Since 1st April 2012, in addition to the above mandatory information, you're required to supply:

  • the name of all subsidiary companies insured for Employers’ Liability under the same policy number
  • the Employers’ Reference Number(s) (ERN) of the policyholder and each subsidiary company insured for Employers’ Liability under the same policy, unless exempt.

If you need help submitting EL data, please get in touch with your Allianz branch for assistance.
