EGAP has been actively involved in activities of the Berne Union and at the beginning EGAP was using know-how of the most important member insurance companies of this organization. In April 1998, after a 2-year observership period, EGAP became the full member of the Union as the first institution of this type from countries of Central and Eastern Europe. In October 2002 the Czech Republic (EGAP) was a host of the Annual Meeting of the Berne Union which is organized twice a year in various member countries of the BU.
Members of the Berne Union keep the guiding principles reflecting their collective view on the international business and the purpose of the BU. These guiding principles have been implemented for individual committees.
