What does EIOPA do?

The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) is one of three European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) which was created to strengthen the EU supervisory framework and to reduce the risk and damage of a future financial crisis. It operates as an independent advisory body to the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union (the Council) and the European Commission (the Commission).
