Stakeholder Groups

​​​​​​​​The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) has close dialogue with representatives of the industry, consumers and academics.

The Insurance & Reinsurance Stakeholder Group and the Occupational Pensions Stakeholder Group include 30 members each and are established to facilitate EIOPA's consultation with stakeholders in Europe on issues such as regulatory and implementing technical standards as well as guidelines and recommendation​​s that apply to the insurance and occupational pensions industry.

Members of the stakeholder groups can submit opinions and advice to EIOPA on any issue related to its task. Additionally, the stakeholder groups are expected to notify EIOPA of inconsistent application of European Union law as well as inconsistent supervisory practices in the different European member states.

For more information about the stakeholder groups you can access the initial announcement of 8 March 2010 or access the EIOPA regulation, article 37.
