ECIROA was formed on 19 August 2008. The association has as object the protection and support of the captive industry as well as representation of its members in discussions with official, regulatory bodies. The Association is aimed at being a forum for captive owners where these can exchange experience across border, business sector or line of insurance business.

In order to get country specific inputs into its working groups and to become true Pan-European the Association wants to attract further members from all European Countries. Now there is one official body – ECIROA – which will be acknowledged as the representantive of Captive owners and thus a direct, competent counterparty for all national and supranational regulatory bodies which may have influence on captives` activities. The association will become involved when specific problems of captives require attention.

ECIROA’s activities are governed by its articles of association.

ECIROA is one of the stakeholders contributing to the Solvency II consultations (the new regulatory requirements for insurance firms that operate in the European Union) and has organised two very successful European Captive Forums in Luxembourg. These events, specifically for captive owners and prospective captive owners, provided a forum for captive industry professionals to meet and debate the important issues for the captive industry. The next European Captive Forum will be held in Luxembourg on 8th – 9th November 2016.
