The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) has published today a Consultation Paper on the proposal for amendments to Implementing Technical Standards on the templates for the submission of information to the supervisory authorities and to EIOPA Guidelines on Reporting and disclosure following the amendment to the Solvency II Delegated Act.
This amendment introduced tailored treatments to insurers' investments in infrastructure, in European Long-Term Investment Funds (ELTIFs) and in equities traded through multilateral trading platforms.
The amendments proposed to supervisory reporting templates and Guidelines on Reporting and Disclosure aim for the collection of meaningful information for supervisory purposes while ensuring the smallest impact possible on the implementation efforts of industry and NCAs.
EIOPA is also using this opportunity to introduce corrective provisions to the Implementing Technical Standards on the templates for the submission of information to the supervisory authorities. These provisions aim to correct minor drafting mistakes to avoid misinterpretation of the text.
EIOPA invites stakeholders and interested parties to provide their feedback on the amendments proposed, including a specific question on European Long-Term Investment Funds.
The consultation period will end on 3 May 2016. Please note that comments submitted after the deadline or not submitted on the provided template cannot be processed.
