The CBI recently published the latest editions of its Solvency II newsletter. Updates include that the CBI will issue an industry survey in June 2015 to assess preparedness for Solvency II and that detailed template completion instructions and validation rules for national specific templates are expected to be published in mid-June. Notably, the CBI has taken a policy decision that no exemptions from quarterly reporting under current rules will be granted, despite issues raised by stakeholders with respect to duplication of reporting under current rules and under Solvency II in Q1 and Q2 of 2015. In addition, the newsletter contains helpful tables showing submission dates and deadlines for reporting under current rules and Solvency II in 2015 and 2016.
