Find the right cover for your business
Becoming a CEAS member is not just about getting the right insurance—you'll get free expert engineering insurance advice, assistance with terms of engagements, industry discounts and the chance to learn from other businesses like yours.
Tailored extendable insurance
You need the right insurance to protect you, your business and your employees. We offer professional indemnity insurance and other professional, personal and travel insurance options. We’re engineers too, and we work with you to make sure you get the cover you need.
Quality policies and stable premiums
Our insurance policies are top quality—they're all vetted by specialist advisors and fellow consulting engineers.
Professional indemnity insurance costs can be unpredictable. Our long-standing relationship with stable reinsurers means we protect you from changing costs without compromising the cover you receive.
