The Central Bank of Ireland (Central Bank) has recently published additional Solvency II Information Notes. The first of these, Note 4, outlines its approach to applications for approvals regarding undertaking-specific parameters (which are being accepted by the Central Bank since 1 April 2015). Note 5 outlines the approval process for special purpose vehicles (SPV) and includes a checklist of supporting documentation to be provided with applications for authorisation as a SPV. Finally, Note 6 sets out details of the Central Bank's approach to the first set of the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) Solvency II Guidelines (issued in February 2015). The Central Bank confirmed its intention to comply with all of the Guidelines and noted that it expects (re)insurers to do likewise.
