    Goals / Remit

    Brokers Ireland is the leading representative body for Insurance Brokers in Ireland. It has a combined membership of over 1,200 firms representing both General Insurance and Financial Brokers throughout Ireland.
    Brokers Ireland advises members, regulators, government and other stakeholders on key insurance issues in order to raise and maintain industry standards. All member offices embrace strict standards of conduct, professionalism and practice to ensure that high standards of service are delivered to all clients.
    The areas of legislation and regulation are a key priority for Brokers Ireland, and it plays a key role in lobbying on behalf of its members.
    Brokers Ireland is a member of BIPAR, the European Federation of Insurance Intermediaries, whose mission is to promote a European regulatory environment in which intermediaries can prosper and that, at the same time, ensures fair competition, an adequate level of consumer protection and a solid and sustainable insurance market.

    Communication activities

    Objective is to lobby for proportionate regulation of the intermediary sector - for example in relation to DORA - Digital Operational Resilience Act, the exemption of small to medium size intermediaries. In respect of MIFID - Markets in Financial Instruments Directive/MIFIR - Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation - oppose proposals to introduce a commission ban. In relation to Capital Markets Union/ Retail Investment Strategy lobby Commissioner McGuinness and other relevant MEPS in relation to proposals to ban commission/inducements. Brokers Ireland lobbies MEP directly and also through BIPAR the European Federation of Insurance and financial intermediaries.
    We do so via emails, letters, meetings and distributing our publications.

    Meetings

    1 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
