On 5 September, EIOPA opened an online survey to seek the views of stakeholders on the scope of certain guidelines in respect of the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD). The IDD requires EIOPA to develop guidelines for the assessment of complex insurance-based investment products (IBIPs) which incorporate a structure that makes it difficult for customers to understand the risks involved. EIOPA also sought views on the types of IBIPs which should be covered by the guidelines. Stakeholders had until 25 September 2016 to complete the survey.

The deadline for publishing the final guidelines is 23 August 2017.
