COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2015/2014

of 11 November 2015

laying down implementing technical standards with regard to the procedures and templates for the submission of information to the group supervisor and for the exchange of information between supervisory authorities in accordance with Directive 2009/138/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 2009/138/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2009 on the taking-up and pursuit of the business of Insurance and Reinsurance (Solvency II) (1), and in particular Article 249(4) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Without prejudice to other forms of cooperation and exchange of information that may occur bilaterally or multilaterally between supervisory authorities, procedures and templates are particularly necessary to facilitate an efficient and convergent exchange of information between the supervisory authorities in the college of supervisors since the college of supervisors should be the main platform for exchanging information among the supervisory authorities of a group.

(2)

Those procedures and templates are addressed to the supervisory authorities in the college of supervisors who decide as part of a coordination arrangement on the information needed for the activities of the college of supervisors and the modalities under which it should be exchanged pursuant to Article 357 of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/35 (2).

(3)

Effective and efficient supervision requires that the exchange of information and the cooperation between supervisory authorities take into account the nature, scale and complexity of the group, the availability and type of information and the most recent and relevant data.

(4)

This Regulation is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted by the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority to the Commission.

(5)

The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority has conducted open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the opinion of the Insurance Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1094/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 8

Cooperation and exchange of information between supervisory authorities outside the college of supervisors

The group supervisor shall ensure that the information is disseminated to all the other supervisory authorities concerned within the college of supervisors at or before the next meeting thereof.

2.   Where a supervisory authority in the college of supervisors receives information from a third party which is relevant to the supervision of the group and shares this information with some of the other supervisory authorities in the college of supervisors, it shall, to the fullest extent possible, subject to any confidentiality restrictions imposed by the third party or by law, report the information to the group supervisor within a reasonable time.
