On 27 June 2013, the EIOPA announced that it had published consultation papers on two good practice reports which are complementary to the planned recast of the existing Insurance Mediation Directive. The papers are (i) a consultation paper on a draft report on good practices on comparison websites which aims at promoting transparency, simplicity and fairness for Internet users in the market for online comparisons of insurance products; (ii) a consultation paper on a draft report on good supervisory practices regarding knowledge and ability requirements for distributors of insurance products, aiming at promoting common supervisory approaches. This sets out good supervisory practices in the form of high-level principles that competent authorities would apply to all distributors of insurance products. Comments on both consultation papers are requested by 23 September 2013.
