COQ Responds to NAIC’s Request for Assistance on PBR

March 27, 2015
Keith Passwater, chairperson of the Committee on Qualifications (COQ), presented to the NAIC Life Actuarial (A) Task Force (LATF), in response to the task force’s request for assistance with the question of certification for actuarial responsibility in principle-based reserving (PBR), and of continuing education (CE) requirements for PBR actuaries. The COQ carefully considered the U.S. Qualification Standards, and determined that those standards already address PBR qualifications, albeit in a generalized manner. The COQ report also cites reference materials to aid actuaries in keeping up with CE related to PBR.
