7 7 The PRA will continue to publish consultation papers on Solvency II to gain industry feedback. Supervisory statements will be published ahead of transposition at 31 March 2015 The PRA proposed 11 NST templates issued as part of CP16/14. Remaining NST templates are expected to be issued for consultation before the end of the year. The PRA expects to issue further information, as required, on materiality levels, exemptions and the application of proportionality later this year or early NumberTemplate Name NS.01With-profits value of bonus NS.02With-profits assets and liabilities NS.03Pools NS.04Assessable mutuals NS.05Revenue account (Life) NS.06Business model analysis (Life) NS.07Business model analysis (Non-Life) NS.08Business model analysis – financial guarantee insurers NS.09Best-estimate assumptions for life insurance risks NS.10Projection of future cash flows (best- estimate – non-life: sub-classes) NS.11Non-life insurance claims information (general liability sub-classes) The PRA is seeking industry feedback on a range of topics

This change was made on the table above after the PRA Solvency II Conference on 17 October 2014.

9 9 The PRA’s expectations of firms participating in the preparatory phase A significant increase in the extent and depth of insurance data shared between firms and the PRA Expectations of firms were set in December 2013 when the PRA published Supervisory Statement 4/13 on applying EIOPA’s preparatory guidelines The preparatory phase should be used by firms to prepare for Solvency II implementation and returns should be of a high standard and quality Firms and groups will need to be on-boarded onto the BoE PRA Data Collection system in Q1/ Training will also be made available All quantitative firm returns are expected to be in XBRL format with qualitative returns in PDF Category 1-3 firms and groups required to report. All firms and groups in scope of preparatory reporting should have been notified in January 2014 NSTs not expected for interim reporting

10 10 Collections system XBRL processor Secure Web Portal PlausibilityValidation EIOPA PRA Supervision QRTs NSTs Qualitative returns The PRA will use a new system to support data collection and XBRL processing, which firms will be able to access via a web portal All returns must be provided in the following formats: QRTs – in XBRL Qualitative returns – in PDF NSTs – in Excel (initially, may move to XBRL in the future) Firm submits Firms will submit returns via a new reporting system Feedback provided to firms on validation and plausibility Re-submissions may be required or further explanation requested

11 11 The PRA intends to implement and start testing the data collection system and the XBRL processor in Q Data collection system testing with firms is planned in two stages; 1.Industry testing for Cat 1-3 firms – Cat 1-3 firms will be expected to test the PRA external web portal prior to June 2015 including logging in, setting up their return and submitting test data 2.Industry testing for non Cat 1-3 firms – from Q all other firms will be provided the opportunity to also test the Portal, to trial logging in, setting up returns and uploading files Firms will be expected to on-board, with those participating in the preparatory phase prioritised Q PRA XBRL testing Industry testing (Cat 1-3) On-boarding (Cat 1-3) Industry testing (all other firms) Q1 Q2 Q3 Q Q The PRA will be conducting industry testing and on- boarding firms throughout 2015 On-boarding (all other firms)

12 Solvency II returns will require the submission of detailed asset data for the first time. As a result, the volume of data submitted is expected to significantly increase. This will include line by line asset data which must include a range of detailed information about the asset including items such as NACE codes and geography. Given this increase in granularity the PRA expects firms to need to have: Early engagement with the organisations who manage their assets to prepare for the requirements that will be placed upon them as a result of the asset data submissions Early engagement with other stakeholders (e.g. IT providers, information providers) The PRA would expect cat 1-3 firms to be well advanced in this regard as some of this granular information will be required in the preparatory reporting. 12 Solvency II reporting increases the amount of detailed information reported

13 The PRA Solvency II regulatory reporting industry working group acts as a forum for the PRA and industry representatives to discuss technical and practical implementation challenges. Three key areas where firms are seeking further clarity have been highlighted. 13 Current ‘hot topics’ from the industry engagement Asset Look throughMateriality threshold Audit and assurance of regulatory returns

14 14 If firms have questions regarding Solvency II regulatory reporting requirements and interpretation, they should : 1.Check the published PRA Q&As on the BoE PRA website 2.Submit questions to EIOPA’s question and answer process if the questions have not already been answered guidelines/index.html 3.Help the PRA track questions submitted to EIOPA by notifying Addressing firm questions The PRA will continue to publish answers to questions received from firms in the run up to implementation

15 The PRA is building a new data collection system and will be ready to receive the submission of information in the preparatory phase from June 2015 The PRA is consulting on NSTs in CP16/14, final templates will be published in a policy statement ahead of transposition. Further consultation papers will be published on reporting including Lloyd’s NST and firm exemptions from Solvency II reporting Reporting policy is increasingly stable, there are some outstanding issues that the PRA is aware of through its work with the regulatory reporting industry working group Testing of the new system is expected to start in Q and will be phased in the run up to implementation. Firms will be expected to on-board to the system from Q Cat 1-3 firms participating in the preparatory phase will be prioritised for both testing and on-boarding Key messages – regulatory reporting
