The deadline for recieving applications has passed.

NEW DEADLINE: 19 April 2020 (extended from 13 April)

EIOPA is launching a call for candidates for its two stakeholder groups: the Insurance and Reinsurance Stakeholder Group (IRSG) and the Occupational Pensions Stakeholder Group (OPSG). 

This is a unique opportunity for consumers, beneficiaries, representatives of industry, professional associations,  SMEs, academia, etc., to have their say in shaping the insurance and occupational pensions sectors in Europe.

EIOPA's stakeholder groups facilitate EIOPA's consultation with stakeholders in Europe on issues such as regulatory and implementing technical standards as well as guidelines and recommendations that apply to the insurance and pension sectors.

Selection process

Details about the call for candidates and the selection process can be found in the related documents below.

Candidates can apply via the online application form below from 2 March to 19 April 2020.


Working conditions

Each group meets at least four times a year at the Authority’s premises in Frankfurt am Main. In addition, a fifth meeting is held jointly between EIOPA’s Board of Supervisors and the two stakeholder groups.

Members of both stakeholder groups serve for a period of four years starting from the date of the public announcement of the composition of the groups. Members may serve two successive terms.

EIOPA provides adequate compensation to members that represent non-profit organisations excluding industry representatives. ​
