The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) has made an important contribution to a common supervisory culture and financial stability in the insurance sector, according to a new report from the European Court of Auditors.

These include more robust oversight of cross-border insurance businesses, supervision of the internal models used by insurance companies and EIOPA’s own governance.
