On 7 May 2013, the Central Bank published its latest edition of its ‘Solvency II Matters’ newsletter. This contains information on recent Solvency II developments, including EIOPA's recently issued Solvency II draft Guidelines, the ongoing long term guarantee assessment (LTGA) process and Omnibus II. The Central Bank has requested that undertakings copy it on responses to EIOPA relating to the Guidelines. Firms participating in the LTGA process have submitted their replies on the quantitative and qualitative aspects to the Central Bank, which has submitted aggregated reports to EIOPA. The Central Bank has also completed a national questionnaire.
