    EIOPA Publishes its Annual Report for 2017

    June 15, 2018

    EIOPA published its annual report for 2017. The report contains a comprehensive account of the activities of EIOPA in the implementation of its mandate and work program during 2017. This year, the work of EIOPA was focused on strengthening supervisory convergence, enhancing consumer protection, and maintaining financial stability.

    EIOPA, in 2017, continued its work with the national supervisory authorities to set out the key characteristics of high-quality and effective supervision that underpin a common supervisory culture. EIOPA also took steps to address perceived weaknesses in cross-border business supervision, for example, by setting up platforms to facilitate cooperation between national supervisory authorities, thus enabling a more timely identification and assessment of risks. To promote a consistent approach to consumer protection, EIOPA advised EC on the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD), which covers issues such as conflicts of interest in selling practices and technical standards on the insurance product information document.

    In addition, EIOPA completed the first part of the first review of the Solvency II regime, offered advice on the recovery and resolution framework for the insurance sector and, conducted a Europe-wide stress test on the occupational pensions sector. Looking ahead to 2018, EIOPA will focus onissues related to digitalization and InsurTech, as well as sustainable finance. EIOPA will also continue to support the actions of EC in the European financial services agenda, including the Capital Markets Union. Working with a wide range of stakeholders, EIOPA aims to build a strong European supervisory culture for the benefit of European consumers.
