On 22 January 2014, the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) Committee adopted a report on the proposed revised Insurance Mediation Directive (IMD2) containing proposed amendments to the Directive. A press release issued by Insurance Europe on 23 January 2014 reports that, amongst other matters, ECON has effectively proposed a ban (which would apply to all insurance products) on tying products as it requires that the elements of a packaged product must be offered for sale independently of each other. The European Parliament is scheduled to consider IMD2 (including the ECON report) during its plenary session between 24 and 27 February 2014; rather than 13 and 16 January 2014, as previously scheduled.
