For applying the above-mentioned amendments to the Domestic Actuarial Regime to (re)insurance undertakings, certain sections of the Domestic Actuarial Regime are proposed to be amended, including Section 1 on introduction, Section 3 on sector specific requirements, Section 4 on exemptions from the requirements, and Appendix related to the format of AOTP.
