EIOPA issued a statement highlighting its consideration that insurance and reinsurance undertakings should now be in condition to comply with the deadlines provided in the Solvency II framework. In the context of the current COVID-19 circumstances, it is important to continue to provide a framework for consistent supervisory approaches and ensure that all competent authorities and EIOPA receive timely quarterly information.
Therefore, this statement from EIOPA aims to foster convergence and consistent supervisory approaches across member states. Against this background, insurance and reinsurance undertakings are expected to report in the Solvency II solo quarterly Own Funds template (S.23.01), with a reference date between June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2020, a calculation (if it is available as of reference date) or at least an estimation of the Solvency Capital Requirement at the end of each quarter reference date instead of the last calculated one, as indicated in the instructions of the implementing technical standards. EIOPA also urges competent authorities to submit the information received quarterly to EIOPA no later than two weeks on receipt, to allow EIOPA to monitor the situation in a timely manner.
