Dear European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as set forth by Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents that contain the following information, regarding – if applicable – the withdrawal of equivalence decisions rendered by the European Commission and/or European Parliament within the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority’s remit:

- all technical reports and/or documents prepared by the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority and issued to support the withdrawal decisions taken by the European Commission and/or European Parliament (if any);
- all documents related to the withdrawal of equivalence decisions in which the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority has provided assistance, including minutes of meetings held by the ESFS regulators, the European Commission, and/or the European Parliament (if any);
- the timeframes comprising the receipt of requests for technical analysis and the issuance of the respective technical reports to support the aforementioned withdrawal decisions taken by the European Commission and/or European Parliament (if any); and
- all correspondence and other kinds of communication, including attachments (such as emails, letters, and/or telephone call notes), between the regulators (including overseas regulators of the third countries for which the equivalence decisions were rendered), other organizations, and the European Commission/European Parliament with respect to the aforementioned equivalence withdrawal decisions (if any).

The aim is to better understand how the ESFS regulators have engaged with equivalence withdrawal decisions; the procedural steps that have been taken prior to a withdrawal of an equivalence decision; and, the time each step in the process to reach a withdrawal decision takes.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any doubts or questions in regards to this request.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Pedro Carvalho
