The Committee of European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Supervisors (CEIOPS) published its first set of Consultation Papers, 12 in all, on Level 2 Implementing Measures on Solvency II in March. These drafts have been developed to expand on the general approach outlined in the Solvency II Directive Proposal that was adopted in December 2008. The second set of 24 papers was published by CEIOPS at the beginning of July. The third set is scheduled for November-to-December 2009. The 10 topics covered by the papers discussed in this series include:

  1. Transparency and Accountability for Supervisors
