Consultation for a draft Regulation on the statistical reporting requirements for pension funds

On the 26 July 2017 the European Central Bank (ECB), in liaison with the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), has launched a public consultation in preparation for the adoption of the forthcoming ECB Regulation on the statistical reporting requirements for pension funds. As part of the public consultation the ECB has created a dedicated web page on its official website.  All related documents, which include (a) the draft Regulation, (b) an explanatory note, (c) a summary note on the euro area matching of merits and costs and (d) the public frequently asked questions, can be accessed here. This consultation, which targets mainly the pension funds industry, the National Central Banks, the National Competent Authorities and the markets, gives interested parties the opportunity to comment on the draft regulation by 29 September 2017.

Following this public consultation, the ECB's Regulation on the statistical reporting requirements for pension funds has been approved and is now public. The ECB gave due consideration to all comments received during the public consultation and consequently streamlined the reporting requirements of pension funds.
