3. Notwithstanding the provisions of article 109 (3) and article 112 (3), natural persons, in order to be registered in the section of the register envisaged in article 109 (2), a) or b), must also take out professional indemnity insurance for the activity pursued pursuant to their registration for at least one million euros applying to each claim and in aggregate one million five hundred euros per year for all claims, covering the whole territory of the European Union, for damage arising from their own professional negligence and misconduct or from the professional negligence, misconduct and infidelity on the part of employees, collaborators or any other persons for whom the intermediary is liable under the law. The above amounts may be raised by ISVAP, by regulation, taking account of changes in the European Index of Consumer Prices.
