Please note that the response to your query represents the opinions formed from a consensus of the PIPA Committee, but do not represent their employing companies. These responses are intended as guidance. Please also refer to guidelines and your own company procedures.
EU QPPV’s would require professional indemnity insurance as they are personally responsible for the PV system.
There are some specialist insurers out there that offer this, check the January PIPELINE edition for one such company’s advertisement.
With regards to bringing in house the deputy EU QPPV role and remain with an out sourced EU QPPV; this is a well-trodden road. You will need to ensure that there is clear and documented communication, including back-up processes, absence cover etc. between the parties.
