EIOPA updated questions and answers (Q&A) on the implementing and delegated regulations related to the Solvency II Directive. This update covers answers related to (EU) No 2015-2450 on templates for the submission of information to the supervisory authorities and answers related to (EU) 2015-35 supplementing the Solvency II Directive.
The EIOPA Q&A tool is intended to ensure the consistent and effective application of the regulation in the European Economic Area. The Q&A tool can be used by all parties, including financial institutions, supervisors, and other stakeholders, for submitting questions on particular regulatory tools that have been published by EIOPA. Financial institutions, supervisors, and other stakeholders can use the Q&A process for submitting questions on EU law and EIOPA guidelines within the area of insurance and pensions. The Q&As have no binding force in law, nor are they subject to "comply or explain." However, their application will be rigorously scrutinized and challenged by EIOPA and national supervisory authorities, given their practical significance to achieve a level-playing field.
