On 3 August 2015, the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) dismissed an appeal by a Romanian insurer against a decision by EIOPA in respect of a challenge by that insurer to the Italian insurance regulator.  The Board of Appeal unanimously concluded that the appeal was inadmissible.  Notably, the Board held that a letter addressed to the insurer by EIOPA could not be deemed to be a 'decision' for the purpose of the relevant appeal rules.  This is because it was simply a re-confirmation of a prior decision taken by EIOPA (which had not itself been contested in time by the insurer under relevant appeal rules).  Therefore, the Board had no jurisdiction to admit any appeal against it.
