PRA issued the policy statement PS16/18, which provides feedback to responses to the consultation paper CP2/18 on changes in insurance reporting requirements. PS16/18 is relevant to all UK Solvency II firms, the Society of Lloyd’s and its managing agents and mutuals.
PRA had received nine responses to the CP2/18. Respondents were broadly supportive of the proposals.
