The Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) is the proposed recast of the Insurance Mediation Directive that would update the regulation of insurance selling practices. The IDD was formerly referred to as IMD II; the name was changed in September 2014 to reflect the focus on regulating the distribution of insurance products. The most controversial change proposed was the requirement for mandatory prior disclosure by intermediaries of the nature (fee and/or commission), basis and amount of any remuneration received.
After debate, the current draft settles on pre-contractual disclosure of the intermediary and the nature, not amount, of their remuneration (whether commission, fee or other type of arrangement).Other proposals include extending the scope of the regulations to direct sales; stricter, MiFID-based requirements for the sale of products with investment elements; and additional rules for the sale of bundled products.
