SELECTION PROCESS 2018
EIOPA's Stakeholder Groups (SHGs) facilitate EIOPA's consultation with stakeholders in Europe on issues such as regulatory and implementing technical standards as well as guidelines and recommendations that apply to the insurance and occupational pensions industry.
Members of the Stakeholder Groups submit opinions and advice to EIOPA on any issue related to its tasks. 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.
EIOPA strives to ensure appropriate geographical and gender balance in its Stakeholder Groups.
