Five Years of the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) – Time to Take Stock

The IDD entered into force on 23 February 2016 and national laws implementing the IDD have now been in application in the majority of Member States for approximately five years since 23 February 2018 or 1 October 2018. Given that the IDD has been in application for a substantial period of time now and National Competent Authorities (NCAs) have considerable experience in supervising and insurance distributors in applying the rules, it is time to take stock of the experiences on the application of the IDD.

The aim of this public event is to gather input on the application of the IDD which can be used for EIOPA’s second report on the application of the IDD to be published by the end of 2023.

The event will cover topics such as the improvement of the quality of advice and selling methods, the impact of emerging trends on insurance distribution (e. g. digitalisation and new rules on sustainability) and the impact of COVID-19 and current geopolitical developments on insurance distribution.

Practical information

Audience: The public event is free and open to any type of organisation and member of the public, including, for example, representatives from national competent authorities, consumer associations/authorities, academics, trade associations, insurance undertakings and insurance intermediaries
