Qualification update

Testing Position

Solvency II Directive

Solvency II comes into effect on 1 January 2016 and examinations will be reflective of the Directive from 1 May 2016. 

The Insurance Act 2015

The Insurance Act 2015 comes into effect on 12 August 2016 and examinations will be reflective of the Act from 1 October 2016.

EU referendum

On 23 June 2016 the UK voted to leave the European Union (EU).

Prime Minister Theresa May announced, in October 2016, that 'Article 50' of the Lisbon Treaty would be invoked no later than the end of March 2017. In doing so, the two year bargaining period which will result in Britain leaving the EU begins. This means that, at the time of publication, the UK's membership of the EU will cease on a date no later than the end of March 2019.

Until this final 'withdrawal agreement' is entered into the UK will continue to be a full member of the Single Market, compliant with all current rules and regulations, and firms must continue to abide by their obligations under UK law, including those derived from EU law, and continue with implementation plans for legislation that is still to come into effect.

The longer term impacts of the decision to leave the EU on the overall regulatory framework for the UK will depend, in part, on the relationship between the UK and the EU that replaces the UK's current membership, but this is unlikely to take effect until the end of March 2019 at the earliest.

Please note: The UK decision to leave the European Union will have no impact on the 2017 CII syllabuses or exams. Changes that may affect future exam syllabuses will be announced as they arise.
