On 13 May 2014, the Presidency of the Council of the EU published a first compromise proposal (9760/14) on the European Commission's text of the revised Insurance Mediation Directive (IMD 2). A number of amendments are proposed, including (a) changes to scope which mean that activities of price comparison websites are now captured (but claims management, loss adjusting and expert appraisal of claims are not), (b) that the effective ban on tying products has been removed (but customers must be informed whether the different components may be purchased separately) and (c) that the need to disclose the amount of intermediaries' remuneration has been deleted. In addition, there is a new definition of "insurance-based investment products", which will be subject to enhanced customer protection requirements (which have themselves been amended in the latest draft text). Professional requirements have also been revised.
