BOE Insurance Taxonomy

Since 1 January 2016, Insurance firms and groups comply with continuously evolving regulatory requirements set by Solvency II Directive and report to Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). On the 26th of July 2018, PRA confirmed the change of the reporting format from Microsoft Excel workbooks to XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) standards for the following returns:

  • National Specific Templates (NSTs)
  • Internal model outputs (IMO)
  • Market risk sensitivities (MRS)
  • Standard formula reporting for firms with an approved internal model (Model Drift)
PRA aims to release final version of the taxonomy is set for October 2018 and make UAT available to firms in early 2019 with changes to the reporting format effective for data reported for year-end 2018.


Invoke, the European leader in regulatory reporting has already supported clients in processing and production of Solvency II Pillar 3 reports for PRA. Hence, to enable S2 firms in the UK to respond rapidly and regularly to new reporting requirements, Invoke has extended its product line to comply with NSTs, Model Drift, MRS and IMO.
