A comprehensive self-assessment template has been published by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in order to aid applicant firms with submissions to compile their internal model approval application (IMAP). Helpfully, the template sets out the IMAP requirements, but also replicates the pertinent text currently appearing in Solvency II to establish those requirements. As a result, this serves as a useful reference guide. The FSA also published an updated webpage which provides information regarding the template, and other points such as changes which may become necessary to the information once the IMAP submission is made to the FSA.
