The Multi-Track Code is a joint initiative between APIL, FOIL, representatives from various insurers and the MIB. The code was first published in March 2008 and launched on 1 July 2008. It was developed with the objective of parties working together, allocating tasks, and narrowing the issues throughout the claim. Not all cases will receive early admissions of liability but there is a common aim to attempt dispute resolution as early as practicable.
The code is aimed at catastrophic claims where damages are over £250,000 and the accident occurred after 1July 2008. The scheme currently excludes clinical negligence and disease claims.

Multi-Track Code Interim Report March 2012
Although the Multi-Track Code pilot came to a close in July 2012, participants are encouraged to continue to update their case details and add new cases to the monitoring database.
Since the closure, the co-ordinating group has been concentrating on taking the scheme forward.
As part of that progress they have created an Interim Report, which is published here.

Comprehensive and collaborative monitoring is an important aspect of the pilot. A database has been specially designed to allow for the collection of information. To access the database please follow this link:

Spirit of the code
From time-to-time there will be claims that do not fall within the parameters of the scheme for various reasons, such as the insurer in the claim is not a participant. It may be possible for the parties to agree to adhere to the code regardless of this and in these instances cases should be monitored on the following database:
