On 17 January 2015, Commission Delegated Regulation 2015/35 (CDR) in respect of Solvency II was published in the Official Journal. Despite a motion tabled by the Greens/European Free Alliance to object to the CDR in December 2014 and a letter from the Chair of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON) outlining perceived issues to be addressed in the CDR, the detailed CDR came into force on 18 January 2015 (the day following its publication in the Official Journal). The recitals to the CDR highlight the importance of the CDR entering into force as soon as possible in order to enhance legal certainty during the phasing-in period provided for under Solvency II.
