- Certificate of Insurance – Contractors: Contracts for infrastructure design and construction projects require completion of this certificate.
- Certificate of Insurance - Professional Liability: This form is for consultants or other professionals undertaking work for the City.
It is important to note that these three forms are the only certificates accepted by the City of London.
