To provide regularly updated and easily accessible information by the public, the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) in accordance with Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 1094/2010 publishes information on registered financial institutions within its area of competence.
The Register of Insurance Undertakings is a representation of the information provided by the respective National Competent Authorities that are responsible for authorisation and/or registration of the reported insurance undertakings’ activities. Great care has been taken in compiling all the information presented here.
Each National Competent Authority also publishes a register of insurance undertakings on their website, in case differences still remain between the information published by EIOPA and the lists available on the National Competent Authority website, the information published in the national websites should prevail and the issue should be reported to the relevant National Competent Authority and if possible informing EIOPA. EIOPA does not accept any liability for the completeness, accuracy and correctness of the information.
Please note that the differences between the information published by EIOPA and the lists available in the national public registers may particularly be due to different underlying national legal frameworks.
As of 1 January 2021, potential discrepancies might arise between the information published by EIOPA and some national public registers due to Brexit. Namely, those UK firms engaged only in transitional run-off regimes within the EEA will not appear in EIOPA’s Register while they might be found in some national public registers. Users of EIOPA’s website are hereby informed of these potential discrepancies so that they may wish to consult the national public registers or contact the National Competent Authorities to receive information regarding each specific situation.
The Register of Insurance Undertakings is updated weekly on Friday.
If you have any questions about this register, please send us your enquiry.
