On 8 August 2014, the European Commission published a request (dated 30 July 2014) to the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) for technical advice on possible delegated acts concerning the proposed Regulation on key information documents (KIDs) for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs) (the PRIIPs KIID Regulation). The PRIIPs KID Regulation was adopted by the European Parliament in April 2014. It introduces a key information document that will provide retail investors with information about a broad range of investment opportunities, including insurance-based investment products, structured investment products and investment funds. The Commission has set EIOPA a deadline to deliver the technical advice within six months of the PRIIPs KID Regulation coming into force. The Commission anticipates that the Regulation will come into force in November or December 2014. It will become applicable two years from that date.
