On 12 November 2010, CEIOPS published a paper setting out its proposed methodology for undertaking equivalence assessments of third countries' supervisory regimes under Solvency II. This CEIOPS paper concentrates on the procedural aspects of equivalence assessments. The annexes to the paper set out illustrative examples of questionnaires on equivalence that CEIOPS (and, subsequently, EIOPA) will require third country supervisors to complete.
