On 23 April 2015, the Central Bank of Ireland (Central Bank) published a feedback statement on its recent consultation on national specific templates (NSTs) for reporting under Solvency II.  Key changes to be reflected in the NSTs as a result of responses received by the Central Bank include that (a) reinsurers will not be in scope for the templates, (b) non-life NSTs 3 - 7 will be collected twice per annum (rather than quarterly), (c) NSTs 1 – 7 will only apply to High impact insurers; and (d) NSTs 8 – 11 (variable annuity business) will allow use of own (rather than Solvency II) hedging bases. The Central Bank intends to issue the revised NSTs by the end of May 2015.
