Certificates of Insurance
Requesting a General Liability Certificate of Insurance
The Department of Risk Management provides certificates of insurance on behalf of the university. To obtain evidence of insurance, a written request must be submitted to the director of risk management, along with a copy of the contract, if applicable. The information required to obtain a certificate is:
- Rationale/purpose for requesting a certificate
- Name of company who is making the request for the certificate, along with the company's address, specific name of individual to whom certificate should be directed, and an email address, fax number and telephone number.
- The specific dates for which the certificate should apply.
- Name of EMU department requesting the certificate and a contact person. Upon receipt of above, risk management staff may require additional information and will take action as deemed appropriate.
If there is a contract/agreement/request by another party to be named as an "additional insured" and/or any legal implication, EMU's General Counsel must first review these documents. If there are any outstanding legal recommendations, they must be satisfactorily resolved prior to any action by the Department of Risk Management.
Requesting an Automobile Certificate of Insurance
The Department of Risk Management provides certificates of insurance for university owned, leased and courtesy vehicles as well as state leased vehicles. To obtain an automobile certificate of insurance, a written request must be submitted to the department with a completed automobile insurance certificate request form and a copy of the applicable lease or purchase agreement. Please allow at least two business days to obtain an automobile certificate. When an automobile is no longer in use by the university, you must notify risk management to terminate insurance coverage on that vehicle. Each department is charged a very minimal annual premium for automobile insurance, which is deducted from the department's designated budget.
