GCCRS is part of a package of initiatives developed in response to the Report of the Independent Ministerial Advisor to the Minister Responsible for the Earthquake Commission in April 2018(external link) The report provided advice to speed up the resolution of outstanding EQC claims as a result of the 2010/2011 Canterbury earthquakes.

Following the release of the report, a group of government agency Chief Executives are working together to implement the recommendations and consider the broader system issues and barriers to claim resolution.

The GCCRS has been established as part of that and provides tangible, practical solutions to help people resolve their insurance claims and move forward with confidence.
