EIOPA was established in 2011, in a time of economic turbulence. The global financial crisis had brought into question the credibility and responsibility of the financial sector and led to an increased lack of both confidence and trust, among the public.
The creation of the European Supervisory Authorities and thus of EIOPA was a fundamental change. It provided an opportunity to ensure a convergent approach to regulation and supervision and contribute to the implementation of a true single market.
