On 24 November 2015, the European Parliament voted to adopt the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) and published the provision text of the adopted Directive. The text has not been significantly amended since the publication of a final compromise proposal on 17 July 2015.  The IDD will now be submitted to the Council for final adoption and will come into force 20 days after publication in the Official Journal.  Member States will have 24 months to transpose the IDD from the date of the IDD's entry into force.
