On 10 October 2014, the European Commission adopted and published a delegated act (in the form of a Commission Delegated Regulation (CDR)) containing technical rules for the implementation of Solvency II. The CDR covers, amongst other matters, rules regarding (a) valuation of assets and liabilities (including technical provisions), (b) capital requirements, (c) eligibility of insurers' own fund items, (d) management and governance, (e) equivalence assessments of third-country solvency regimes, (f) reporting and disclosure and (f) rules related to insurance groups. The purpose of the CDR is to ensure consistent implementation of Solvency II throughout Member States. The European Parliament and the Council of the EU are expected to consider the CDR within the next six months. Once finalised, the CDR will enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
