Question for written answer E-001205-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Herbert Dorfmann (PPE)

 Subject:  Free movement of services as regards insurance broking and the conclusion of insurance contracts in the EU
 Answer in writing 

Insurance companies and intermediaries wishing to offer their customers insurance products repeatedly have to contend with legal uncertainties regarding the cross-border distribution of such products.

When an insurance company established in one Member State is doing business in another Member State where it has no office, is it permitted under Directive (EU) 2016/97 to exercise the freedom to provide services by brokering insurance contracts and then concluding contracts related to an insurance product?
