AMICE represents the mutual and cooperative sector at European level in several arenas and particularly towards the European policymaking and stakeholder communities.
AMICE regularly undertakes advocacy work towards the European Commission, notably towards the Directorate-General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union (DG FISMA); the European Parliament including the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON Committee); and the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), the European Supervisory Authority (ESA) for the insurance and pensions industries.
AMICE sits on the Board at Social Economy Europe which provides the secretariat for the European Parliament’s Social Economy Intergroup.
Four AMICE member representatives currently are appointees on EIOPA’s two stakeholder groups:
AMICE holds observer status on the Insurance Accounting working group within the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) which works on developing financial reporting standards that are then considered by the European Commission.
AMICE also represents its members with participation in the Insurance Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee (ISSDC) on the employers’ side (see section on social dialogue).
AMICE is represented on the European Union’s Cooperative Connected Automated Mobility (CCAM) Single Platform looking at intelligent transport concerns.
