On 5 October, the Central Bank issued Release Notes for version 1.1.0 of the Central Bank Solvency II National Specific Templates (NST) Data Point Model (DPM) and XBRL Taxonomy. These reporting templates are deemed necessary to address requirements specific to the local market and/or the nature of insurance undertakings supervised in Ireland and which are not catered for in the set of Solvency II harmonised reporting templates produced by EIOPA. NST's extend the information requirements of Solvency II defined by EIOPA. Therefore the Central Bank NST DPM extends the EIOPA Solvency II DPM and the Central Bank XBRL taxonomy is an extension of the EIOPA Solvency II XBRL Taxonomy.

The Release Notes introduce the DPM and XBRL taxonomy deliverables covering information requirements defined by the Central Bank in the NSTs. The Release Notes are planned to be used for collection of NST quarterly submissions from Q4 2016 onwards.
