Public consultation on open insurance, focused on access to and sharing of insurance-related data.
In the Discussion Paper, EIOPA explores questions on whether and how far insurance value chains should be ‘opened’ up by the sharing of insurance-related and specific policyholder data amongst insurance and non-insurance firms, to protect policyholder rights and to allow for innovation in products and services. The main areas of the consultation paper include:
- open insurance definition and use cases
- risks and benefits of open insurance
- regulatory barriers
- possible areas to consider for a sound open insurance framework
Stakeholders are strongly encouraged to provide views to the Discussion Paper by filling out the EU Survey Tool by 28 April 2021.
