PensionsEurope answer to the European Commission public consultation on fitness check on supervisory reporting
16/03/2018

PensionsEurope welcomes the European Commission public consultation on fitness check on supervisory reporting. We find it important that the Commission regularly conducts fitness checks on supervisory reporting to ensure that the ESAs work effectively, and supervisory activities remain proportionate in their scope.

In general, pension funds are embedded in national social and labour law and supervisory reporting should take into account specificities of pension funds, National Supervisory Authorities are responsible for supervising pension funds, supervisors should consider very carefully which information is really relevant and needed (as reporting and collecting information always result in cost), and supervisors and policymakers should not have a bank bias towards pension funds.
