European Insurance and Pensions Committee – EIOPC


Overview

Directive 2005/1/EC amending various financial services directives in order to establish a new organisational structure for financial services committees was finally adopted on 9 March 2005. The new Directive was published in Official Journal No L 79 on 24 March 2005. It extends the Lamfalussy committee structure to the banking, insurance and UCITS areas (undertakings for collective investment in transferable securities). The result of this new Directive in the insurance and occupational pensions sectors is the disappearance of the Insurance Committee and its replacement by the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Committee (EIOPC).

It will be remembered that the EIOPC was established by Commission Decision 2004/9/EC of 5 November 2003. It was stipulated however that that Decision would “enter into force on the same day as the entry into force of any directive amending the purely advisory functions of the Insurance Committee”.

The new Directive has entered into force on the twentieth day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union namely the 13th April 2005.

History

Insurance Committee (IC) is a regulatory and legislative policy body that was created in December 1992 under the Council Directive 91/675/EEC specifically setting up the Committee.

To simplify and improve the decision-making and implementation in the financial services sector, the European Commission has launched a package of seven measures: a proposal for a Directive (COM/2003/659) and six Commission Decisions. With this package the approach already used in the securities sector would be extended to insurance through the establishment of two new committees:

  1. European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Committee (EIOPC with 2004/9/EC) would be set up to replace IC and to assist the Commission in adopting implementing measures for EU Directives; and
  2. Committee of European Insurance and Pensions Supervisors (CEIOPS with 2004/6/EC) has been established to act as an independent advisory group on insurance and occupational pensions.
