Immediate access to 2013 documentation
As Members renew their entries for 2013 they will receive PDF copies of their documentation by email, either directly or through their brokers. You can print the documents contained in that PDF attachment on a colour printer and treat them as original documents. Please note that we will not be issuing hard copies of these documents.
The renewed Certificates of Entry, debit notes, Blue Cards and COFR documentation can all be downloaded the instant they are produced by accessing the Members Area of our website, or via the underwriting app – iPandi.
If you have any queries regarding the documentation that has been produced please call your usual contact in underwriting without delay.
Accessing documentation via iPandi
Tap the iPandi icon on your iPad and enter your password to login.
At the foot of the summary page that is displayed is a menu of four icons. Tap the ‘Documents’ icon on the far right of that menu.
A list of your renewed documents for UK P&I, and UK Defence if applicable, is displayed.
Tap the document you wish to view and your iPad will display a list of available PDF readers and ask you to select one. By tapping on one of those reader icons, the PDF will open on the screen.
If you do not have iPandi installed on your iPad go to the Apps & Social Media page to learn how you can set up this app and get instant access to key account information for your entry with the UK P&I Club and UK Defence Club.
