Is this intermediary entitled to sell insurance products to me?

 

If you face a question whether an intermediary is registered or not, this page with hyperlinks to national registers or single information points will help you.
The Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) requires an intermediary to be registered. Intermediaries may not only be registered in your home country, but may also be entitled to provide their services cross-border to you from another country of the European Union where they are originally registered. In order to facilitate your access to the information on the registration of intermediaries, EIOPA has published this page with hyperlinks to national registers.

Disclaimer
According to Article 3(4), IDD, EIOPA is required to "establish, publish on its website and keep up-to-date a single electronic register containing records of insurance, reinsurance and ancillary insurance intermediaries which have been notified their intention to carry on cross-border business." This website serves as a provisional database of hyperlinks to national registers. EIOPA is assessing the most adequate long term approach towards an online register by analogy to existing EIOPA registers to further enhance transparency and facilitate cross-border trade.

If you have problems with the national registers
Please feel free to get in contact with the national competent authority.
