Solvency II Pillar 3 Reporting Requirements

The Solvency II Pillar 3 regulatory reporting requirements came into force on 1 January 2016. Firms must produce two key reports:

i)    the Solvency and Financial Condition Report (SFCR) – UK firms are required to disclose this report publicly and to report it to the Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA) on an annual basis. The SFCR includes both qualitative and quantitative information; and

ii)    the Regulatory Supervisory Report (RSR) – This is a private report to the supervisor and is not disclosed publicly. UK firms submit this report to the PRA in full at least every three years and in summary every year. The RSR includes both qualitative and quantitative information.

In addition firms must comply by the Rules set out in Policy Statement 2/15 in relation to submitting national specific templates.


Pursuant to the above requirements and specifically to Art. 51 Solvency II Directive 2009/138/EC North of England P&I Association Limited (“North”), the parent company of Sunderland Marine, publishes SFCRs for North Group and for North and Sunderland Marine Insurance Company Limited (“SMI”) which are North Group’s Solvency II regulated legal entities (solo reports).  The SFCRs have been prepared in accordance with the financial reporting provisions of the PRA rules and Solvency II regulations.

The Sunderland Marine SFCR is available here: Solvency and Financial Condition Report. For an overview of the financial standing of North Group as a whole, please refer to North P&I Club's Website.
