    October 18, 2019

    EC published, in the Official Journal of the European Union, as communicated by the respective member states, particulars that must be given in the certificate which a non-life insurance undertaking must issue to an insured person where that member state requires proof that the obligation to take out insurance has been complied with. The list was published pursuant to Article 179(4) of the Solvency II Directive (2009/138/EC). The information has been published for Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden, and the UK.

    As per Solvency II under the applicable law and conditions of direct insurance contracts, non-life insurance undertakings may offer and conclude compulsory insurance contracts under certain set conditions. Where a member state imposes an obligation to take out insurance, an insurance contract shall not satisfy that obligation unless it complies with the specific provisions relating to that insurance laid down by that member state. Where a member state imposes compulsory insurance and the insurance undertaking is required to notify the supervisory authorities of any cessation of cover, such cessation may be invoked against injured third parties only in the circumstances laid down by that member state. A member state may require that the particulars include a declaration by the insurance undertaking to the effect that the contract complies with the specific provisions relating to that insurance. Article 179 (4) of the Solvency II Directive states that each member state shall communicate to EC the risks against which insurance is compulsory under its legislation, stating the following:

    (a) The specific legal provisions relating to that insurance

    (b) The particulars which must be given in the certificate which a non-life insurance undertaking must issue to an insured person where that member state requires proof that the obligation to take out insurance has been complied with

    A member state may require that the particulars referred to in point (b) of the first subparagraph include a declaration by the insurance undertaking to the effect that the contract complies with the specific provisions relating to that insurance. EC shall publish the particulars referred to in point (b) of the first subparagraph in the Official Journal of the European Union.
