On 8 January 2016, EIOPA published a report on the practices of national supervisors when engaging in supervisory colleges (with a view to evaluating this in the context of its increased importance under Solvency II).  Practices for the reference period September 2012 to September 2013 were examined.  Key findings included that each supervisor should develop an overall policy for its college work. A number of recommendations were also made for supervisors in areas such as governance, information flow and group risk assessment.
