Reporting and disclosure obligations of primary insurers, reinsurers and insurance groups

Pillar III of Solvency II primarily relates to reporting requirements of undertakings and groups towards the Supervisory Authority, their disclosure obligations towards the public and the reporting requirements for financial stability purposes. The disclosure obligations, in particular, will ensure greater transparency and thus promote market discipline.
