The Central Bank recently published the latest editions of its Solvency II Matters newsletter (on 30 June and 29 July 2015, respectively). In particular, this highlights two ongoing Central Bank reviews, namely a review of its existing guidelines and requirements to assess applicability/suitability under Solvency II, and a review of all existing conditions of authorisation for (re)insurers with a view to assessing whether/how these need to be transitioned under Solvency II).  The Central Bank also intends to publish 'lessons learned' from the most recent preparatory phase reporting carried out by High and Medium High impact (re)insurers in due course. Finally, the Central Bank expects to issue an industry wide Solvency II implementation preparedness survey in early September 2015. Helpfully, the Central Bank has also provided a Solvency II timetable for the period leading up to 1 January 2016, together with a checklist for firms to track their preparation and progress.
