IORP II is Transposed
In a Press Release issued yesterday the Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys T.D., announced that she has signed the ‘European Union (Occupational Pension Schemes) Regulations 2021’ which finally transposes the IORP II Directive into Irish law. The Regulations provide a derogation for one-member arrangements so that only the provisions on investment and borrowing will apply to those. All the provisions will apply to all other arrangements. The Regulations run to 73 pages and we also expect guidance to be issued by the Pensions Authority on the application of the Regulations. We will examine the Regulations in detail over the coming days and will consider their practical impact.
