BEEDS portal

Regulatory reporting  |  Industry working group  |  Taxonomy ​ |  Detailed technical information  |  BEEDS portal

Firms will use the 'Bank of England Electronic Data Submission' (BEEDS) portal to submit the required Solvency II regulatory returns.
Firms' CEOs will be asked to nominate a principal user who will be responsible for making their firm's Solvency II submissions to the BEEDS portal. Principal users will be provided with log in details for the BEEDS portal and additional users can then be set up in the BEEDS portal. Materials are available in Key Resources below to help firms familiarise themselves with the BEEDS portal in time to make their submission by the relevant deadlines.

The materials include a detailed User Guide and several eLearning tutorials on various aspects of using the BEEDS portal. The Bank of England will liaise with the firm’s CEO-nominated principal users for all matters related to the BEEDS portal.
Some firms made their first submissions during 2015 when EIOPA's Preparatory Guidelines were in force. For those firms that are making their first submissions in 2016 now that Solvency II is in force a seminar was held on 22 October 2015 to provide i) an overview of the Solvency II Pillar 3 submission requirements and ii) information about the system that firms will use. The slides from the seminar and a recording are available on the Regulatory Reporting page.
