Position Paper
Response to EIOPA consultation paper on a draft report on good practices on comparison websites

Insurance Europe welcomes this consultation and supports the objective of EIOPA to promote transparency, simplicity and fairness for internet users in the market for online comparisons of insurance products.

Comparison websites can play a key role in the delivery of information to consumers on insurance products and in their distribution. Consumers should be able to benefit from the same level of information and fair practices regardless of the nature of the comparison website (ie whether it is commercial or non-commercial).

Regardless of this, we believe that further clarification of the intention and scope of this paper might be a useful step before adopting any good practices.
