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.
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
If you have problems with the national registers
Please feel free to get in contact with the national competent authority.
Please note that EIOPA is not responsible for registering intermediaries or maintaining national registers or single information points. Please contact the national competent authority, in case there are any questions on registration or maintenance of the register.
Where insurance, reinsurance and ancillary insurance intermediaries cease to fulfil the requirements laid down in Article 10, IDD, they will need to be removed from the register.
