One main challenge for insurance and reinsurance undertakings after the Solvency ii directive, is the need to assess the fitness and propriety of the persons who effectively run the undertaking. This is clear from many Articles, including Article 42 of the Solvency II Directive:

"Article 42

Fit and proper requirements for persons who effectively run the undertaking or have other key functions

1. Insurance and reinsurance undertakings shall ensure that all persons who effectively run the undertaking or have other key functions at all times fulfil the following requirements:

(a) their professional qualifications, knowledge and experience are adequate to enable sound and prudent management (fit); and

(b) they are of good repute and integrity (proper).

2. Insurance and reinsurance undertakings shall notify the supervisory authority of any changes to the identity of the persons who effectively run the undertaking or are responsible for other key functions, along with all information needed to assess whether any new persons appointed to manage the undertaking are fit and proper.

3. Insurance and reinsurance undertakings shall notify their supervisory authority if any of the persons referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 have been replaced because they no longer fulfil the requirements referred to in paragraph 1."

The training and certification programs of the Solvency II Association are designed for managers and employees of firms demanding qualified professionals that meet the fit and proper requirements.
