Enrollment in IBRACOR

On 11/21/19, SUSEP recognized IBRACOR as a self-regulatory institution for insurance brokers. From this date, the entire affiliation and registration procedure must be done through the IBRACOR website.

Labrador requires that in order to obtain the registration, the Broker has the official certification offered by the official teaching and certification institution (ENS).

The documentation required by IBRACOR is similar to the list required by SUSEP. The big change noticed so far is the charging of fees for the PF or PJ registration service.
