NAIC - Qualified Jurisdictions Set to Expand

Industry News

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) today announced that five international reinsurance supervisory authorities have been recommended by the NAIC’s Qualified Jurisdiction (E) Working Group for approval as Qualified Jurisdictions under the Process for Developing and Maintaining the NAIC List of Qualified Jurisdictions. Recommendations include the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA); the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin); the French Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution (ACPR); the Central Bank of Ireland (Central Bank); and the United Kingdom’s Prudential Regulation Authority of the Bank of England (PRA).

If approved by the full NAIC membership, the jurisdictions would be placed on the NAIC List of Qualified Jurisdictions effective Jan. 1, 2015. Adopted by the NAIC in August 2013, the process was developed to evaluate the reinsurance supervisory systems of non-U.S. jurisdictions for reinsurance collateral reduction purposes. Reinsurers licensed and domiciled in these five jurisdictions are eligible to be certified for reduced reinsurance collateral requirements under the NAIC’s Credit for Reinsurance Model Law.
