    EIOPA on Use of Limitations and Exemptions Under Solvency II Reporting

    December 20, 2018

    EIOPA published the third annual report on the use of exemptions and limitations from the regular supervisory reporting in 2017 and the first quarter of 2018 by national competent authorities under Solvency II. The report describes the data sources used for the analysis and examines the process for granting limitations and/or exemptions from reporting templates, the quarterly exemptions for solo undertakings, the proportionality principle in quarterly reporting, and the process for granting limitations regarding the reporting of credit rating information.

    The report addresses the proportionality principle on reporting requirements, from which the limitations and exemptions on reporting—as foreseen in Article 35 of the Solvency II Directive—are just one of the existing proportionality tools. Reporting requirements also reflect a natural embedded proportionality. In addition, the risk-based thresholds were included in the implementing technical standard on reporting. The quantitative information is obtained from the reporting templates Solvency Capital Requirement (SCR) Own Funds template (S.23.01), Gross Written Premiums (GWP) from the Premiums, claims, and expenses by line of business template (S.05.01), technical provisions from the Balance sheet template (S.02.01), and Total assets from the Balance sheet template (S.02.01). 

    The report presents two different examples for quarterly templates that give evidence that the different tools used to apply proportionality in reporting complement each other and result in a proportionate and risk-based approach. In the cases presented, only 26% and 23% of the undertakings, for derivatives and look-through templates respectively, reported the templates quarterly. Additionally, the report highlights that about 27% of the undertakings are allowed a limited quarterly reporting, with the market share of such undertakings varying between 0% and 14.6% for non-life Gross Written Premiums and between 0% and 4.5% for life Technical Premiums. At the country level, the top three countries allowing exemptions by number of undertakings are Luxembourg, France, and Norway (with 70%, 67%, and 64%, respectively). However, a different picture emerges when looking at the exemptions in terms of total assets, wherein Liechten­stein ranks highest, followed by Malta and France (with 7.1%, 6.5%, and 5.4%, respectively).
