Measures BaFin imposes on undertakings subject to supervision under the Insurance Supervision Act (Versicherungsaufsichtsgesetz – VAG) and their senior management

BaFin publishes on its website certain measures and administrative fine decisions imposed on undertakings subject to supervision under the VAG or their senior management. The basis for publication is section 319 (1) of the VAG.

The publication of sanctions including administrative fine decisions aims to generally help prevent breaches by informing the public and market participants what behaviour is considered a breach by BaFin.

Publication of measures and administrative fine decisions on an anonymous basis

Subject to certain conditions stipulated in section 319 (2) sentence 1 numbers 2-3 of the VAG, BaFin publishes measures and administrative fine decisions on an anonymous basis. This applies, for example, if publication would cause disproportionate damage to the undertaking involved.
