Amendments Processing for (Re)insurance Undertakings

The Central Bank of Ireland plays a role in assessing any proposed amendments to an undertaking's approved business model, and in processing changes to master data held on our systems.  This section highlights the changes that may be required in the normal course of business. 

  • Regulated insurance undertakings must submit any Request Change listed below via the Central Bank of Ireland Portal.
  • Where an unregulated third party (e.g. an acquirer or a legal representative) wishes to submit an Acquiring Transaction Notification or a Portfolio Transfer Notification they will not have access to the Central Bank of Ireland Portal; they should therefore contact the relevant entity’s supervision team for details on how to submit the notification and supporting documentation.

If you are unclear about the process for requesting a particular change, or about the supporting documentation that should accompany your request, please discuss the relevant entity’s regular supervisory contact.
