Insurance Distribution Directive: on 25 September 2017, EIOPA to develop Q&As on interpretation and application

The Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) came into force on 23 February 2016 and has to be implemented into national laws by 23 February 2018. The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) has launched a survey to gather data from stakeholders for the development of a set of questions and answers (Q&As) on the IDD and its implementing measures.

EIOPA is seeking to collect questions from external stakeholders in order to develop a Q&A document related to insurance distribution activities, with a focus on issues of interpretation or application of the IDD and its implementing measures. The Q&As are intended to provide more clarity for market participants on the application of the IDD requirements and to promote common supervisory approaches. The Q&As will not be binding, nor subject to a 'comply or explain' process.

Responses to the survey are due by 11 October 2017.
