IAIS published the final application paper on recovery planning, along with the resolution of comments on the draft application paper. The consultation on the paper ran from November 2018 to January 2019. The application paper provides guidance with respect to supervisory material on recovery planning in the Insurance Core Principles (ICPs) and ComFrame. The paper is related to the material in ICP 16.15 and ComFrame 16.15.a and 16.15.b (ICP 16 on enterprise risk management for solvency purposes). The paper is also relevant to supervisory cooperation and coordination arrangements set out in ICP 23 on the group-wide supervisor and in ICP 25 on supervisory cooperation and coordination.
The paper addresses issues that were identified in the development of the material, including feedback received from members and stakeholders during public consultations. The issues involved both the nature of a recovery plan and the roles of the supervisor and insurer with respect to the plan. The paper provides recommendations and guidance to supervisors regarding recovery planning and cooperation and coordination between supervisors. It also provides additional information for insurers with regard to recovery planning, along with the examples illustrating application of principles, standards, and guidance relevant to recovery planning. The key topics covered in the paper include the following:
- Objectives and concepts of recovery planning
- Requirements for recovery plans and the application of the proportionality principle to recovery planning
- Governance-related matters in recovery planning, including the development and approval process of a recovery plan and how a recovery plan relates to the overall risk management of an insurer
- Key elements of a recovery plan and examples of how these can be addressed in a recovery plan
- The role of the supervisor (or supervisors in a cross-border group) in recovery planning
