On 8 December 2015, the Council of the European Union announced that it had decided to not object to a proposed amendment to Commission Delegated Regulation (CDR) 2015/35 on the calculation of regulatory requirements for several categories of assets held by (re)insurers (e.g. infrastructure, European long-term investment funds and certain equities). This must now be considered by European Parliament. On 15 December 2015, the European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) published a letter stating that the deadline for raising objections to the proposed CDR effecting the amendments (C(2015) 6588) has been extended by three months to 30 March 2015.
