The Insurance Council collects catastrophe related claims data from the Australian market as part of its role in supporting the industry to deliver repairs, rebuilding and recovery services following large disasters.

The ICA Catastrophe Database commenced in 1967 and records insurance loss estimates for declared insurance catastrophe events.

Access to the full ICA Catastrophe Database containing detailed claims data and linked GIS data is restricted to members of the ICA, approved researchers and relevant bodies who support capital allocation and reinsurance processes.
