CEIOPS released a report on 2 July 2009 outlining practical problems which CEIOPS members have encountered since the introduction of the Insurance Mediation Directive (2002/92/EC) (IMD) and the solutions that have been found to those issues. The report was published following concerns expressed by the European Commission about the differing transpositions of the IMD. The objective of the report is to promote a common approach in the regulation and supervision of insurance intermediaries. It is intended that the report be maintained and updated in order to reflect further emerging issues under the IMD.
