IAIS published a Level 2 document on the Insurance Capital Standard (ICS) Version 2.0 for the monitoring period. The documentation framework for ICS Version 2.0 for the monitoring period consists of three document levels. The Level 1 document for the ICS Version 2.0 for the monitoring period sets out the overarching principles and concepts (that is ICS architecture) for the annual confidential reporting of the reference ICS and additional reporting during the five-year monitoring period. The Level 1 document should be read in conjunction with the more detailed specifications contained in the Level 2 document for ICS Version 2.0 for the monitoring period. Levels 1 and 2 together form ICS Version 2.0 for the monitoring period.
Level 3 documents, which are yet to be released, will build on the information in Levels 1 and 2, with additional information to enable annual confidential reporting. The Level 3 documents will be issued annually in the second quarter to launch confidential reporting. The ICS Version 2.0 for the monitoring period was agreed by the IAIS Executive Committee on November 13, 2019. The five-year monitoring period for confidential reporting and discussion in supervisory colleges is from the beginning of 2020. The ICS is being developed as a consolidated group-wide capital standard for Internationally Active Insurance Groups (IAIGs). It consists of three components: valuation, qualifying capital resources, and a standard method for the ICS capital requirement. The ICS will form part of the Common Framework for the Supervision of Internationally Active Insurance Groups (ComFrame).
