The use of gender in insurance pricing

PE 453.214

Note  requested by the European Parliament's Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality



In March 2011, on the basis of the Council Directive 2004/113/EC implementing the principle of equal treatment between men and women in the access to and supply of goods and services, the Court of Justice applied the  rohibition of direct discrimination which does not permit any specific justification, unlike indirect discrimination, in the sector of insurance which is  particularly important from an economic perspective.
