On 4 November 2013, the Central Bank published its final Guidelines on Preparing for Solvency II (the "Guidelines"). This follows the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority ("EIOPA")’s publication of their final Guidelines for the Preparation of Solvency II on 27 September 2013. The Central Bank’s Guidelines closely reflect EIOPA’s Guidelines and are linked to the Central Bank’s PRISM risk-based supervisory framework.
