EIOPA has published its Single Programming Document for 2018, highlighting and specifying the activities and tasks for the coming year, within the framework of a multi-annual work programme 2017-2019.
EIOPA comments that outcomes of the Brexit negotiations and of the review into the ESAs is still uncertain and has not factored them into its SPD. EIOPA sets its planning assumptions, multi-annual objectives, multi-annual work programme and key performance indicators. EIOPA’s multi-annual objectives include:
- enhancing supervisory convergence;
- reinforcing preventive consumer protection; and
- preserving financial stability.
EIOPA also comments that at the end of 2018, it will be ready, prepared and have assessed the impact and taken measures to facilitate the withdrawal of the UK by May/June 2019 without major implications to the sectors and consumers in the UK and EU27.
