On 5 November 2013, EIOPA published its response (dated 15 October 2013) to the Financial Stability Board's (FSB) consultation paper on the application of the key attributes of effective resolution regimes to non-bank financial institutions (including insurers). While EIOPA supports the FSB's approach of tailoring the key attributes, it sought clarification on the appropriate hierarchy of objectives involved in a resolution. EIOPA's response also covered certain questions raised in the FSB's consultation paper, such as whether there should be a distinction made between traditional insurers and those carrying out non-traditional non-insurance activities.
