- The Earthquake Commission (EQC) has given itself six weeks to classify a final “bucket” of Canterbury earthquake claims, the Insurance Council says.
EQC must refer insurance claim for damage over $100,000 – known as over-cap – to private insurers.

Once the claims were classified, private insurers would theoretically know the full extent of their liability, Grafton said.
