From 31 March 2022, DHSC will no longer be supporting the MIA register, so your Trust which has received the medical equipment must check that you have adequate insurance cover provided by the supplier from this date.

The Master Indemnity Agreement covers the free use of the Equipment (for the purpose of evaluation, testing, research, design, or trial demonstration of equipment) provided on a loan basis or transferred for free and on a no hire and no purchase basis. Until now MIA provided assurance of insurance cover as part of this scheme.

The MIA register holds the names of all the suppliers, their MIA registration numbers and the expiry date of their insurance, and is currently updated and published monthly.
