IORP II Directive

The new EU Directive on the activities and supervision of institutions for occupational retirement provision (IORP II) was adopted in 2016.  The EU deadline for transposition was in January 2019. The Authority is providing ongoing technical support to the Department of Social Protection in transposing the Directive at the earliest possible date.

On 1 October 2018, the Pensions Authority published information (see under Related Files below) to give trustees an understanding of the breadth of their responsibilities arising from the provisions of the IORP II Directive. This information is provided to assist trustees in preparing for what the potential impact might be and what actions they should consider now.
