    IAIS Publishes Newsletter for November 2019

    December 02, 2019

    IAIS published the November issue of its newsletter. This issue marks the 25th anniversary of IAIS and highlights that IAIS has reached an agreement on a comprehensive set of reforms designed to strengthen effective cross-border supervision of Internationally Active Insurance Groups (IAIGs) and to contribute to global financial stability. Additionally, IAIS published its 2018 annual report in which it focused intensively on supporting IAIS members to deliver its commitments to the post-crisis reform agenda. IAIS also announced the appointment of Dr. Manuela Zweimueller as Head of Supervisory Practices, with effect from January 01, 2020.

    In November 2019, IAIS finalized the comprehensive review and update of IAIS Insurance Core Principles (ICPs), which are applicable to the supervision of all insurers. IAIS also adopted the Holistic Framework for the assessment and mitigation of systemic risk in the insurance sector and the Common Framework, or ComFrame, that provides the first global framework for effective and globally consistent supervision of IAIGs. IAIS agreed on the Insurance Capital Standard (ICS) Version 2.0, the quantitative element of ComFrame, for a five-year monitoring period. The assessment of implementation of supervisory material related to ComFrame and the Holistic Framework for assessing and mitigating systemic risk will be led by Dr. Zweimueller. 

    The newsletter also announced that the Accounting and Auditing Working Group (AAWG) is expected to meet on December 17-18 in Japan to discuss the IASB agenda, audit quality issues, jurisdictional implementation activities of IFRS 17, and Monitoring Group developments. The AAWG will also discuss partnering with other organizations to establishing forums for supervisors to discuss the implementation of IFRS 17.
