Diese Woche: Solvency II – Outlook for the rest of the year

10.08.2015 – Bernadino pensions europeEiopa-Chairman Gabriel Bernardino exclusive for Versicherungswirtschaft-heute. In the recent years we have witnessed many supervisory regimes all over the world. Solvency II was inspired by the early developments in risk-based regulation in countries like Canada and Australia. It is only natural that its development motivated other countries to move in a similar direction.

For example, the new insurance risk-based regulatory regimes of countries like Mexico, China, Brazil and Bermuda, adopt approaches consistent with the basic Solvency II principles, while, naturally, developing practical solutions adapted to their own market realities. Furthermore, the basic sound principles of Solvency II are also considered in the setting up of the International Capital Standards by the International Association of Insurance Supervisors. Talking about Solvency II, I think that the equivalence process has significantly contributed to the international movement towards risk-based regulation and supervision.

Eiopa has been working on Solvency II equivalence assessments since the first year of its existence. In 2011, we delivered the first assessments of the Swiss, Bermudan and Japanese supervisory systems. In the course of last years, we have assessed ten further supervisory regimes – in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Israel, Mexico, Singapore and South Africa. This work was instrumental for the recent Solvency II equivalence decisions taken by the European Commission.

I believe that the Solvency II equivalence is beneficial for supervisory authorities and market participants alike. It sets a path for convergence of practices, increased cooperation and at the same time relieves companies from unnecessary burdens arising from dual supervision.

This year, Solvency II remains the top priority for me and for Eiopa. It is a huge step forward for policyholder protection and for the implementation of a true single market in the EU. My goal is to ensure a successful transition to the new regulatory regime, which enters into force on 1 January 2016.
