On 6 February 2014, the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) published the responses received by it regarding its recent consultation on proposed options for the development of basic capital requirements (BCR) for global systemically important insurers. This was the first of two BCR public consultations planned by the IAIS. The second consultation, scheduled for mid-2014, will invite further comments on more specific BCR proposals and how the BCR dovetails with other existing and proposed regulatory regimes and measures such as the proposed IAIA global insurance capital standard and Solvency II.
