Earlier this month, the Central Bank published the most recent edition of its Solvency II newsletter. Notably, it intends, during November 2014, to (a) carry out a survey to determine if (re)insurers intend to apply for and use 'early approval' mechanisms (which are available for, amongst other matters, volatility and matching adjustments) under Solvency II and (b) consult on 'national specific templates' for Solvency II reporting. The newsletter also includes a reminder of reporting dates under for Submission of Information (SoI) and Forward Looking Assessment of Own Risks (FLAOR) requirements. A summary of other recent Solvency II developments is also included.
