OFESAUTO, the Spanish Automobile Insurers Bureau, is the Spanish National Green Card Bureau. The so-called “Green Card” system is designed to help international vehicle transit and to guarantee that victims of car accidents where vehicles of different countries take part, are covered.

Accordingly, OFESAUTO handles both information requests and compensation claims, for accidents which happen in Spain involving foreign vehicles as well as for accidents which happen abroad. Its roles are set out in the Council of Bureaux Internal Regulations and other International Agreements.

Its operational rules are set out in the Social Statute which determines its Government Bodies: General Assembly, Executive Board and Executive Management.
