On 28 February 2015, EIOPA published technical information and documentation in relation to the risk free interest rate (RFIR) (which may be used as part of the process of discounting technical provisions under Solvency II).  From January 2016, EIOPA will publish monthly RFIR information (taking into account factors such as market interest rates).  Technical information and documentation in relation to the RFIR is being made available at this stage to facilitate firms' Solvency II preparations.
