Context

Under the PRIIPS regulations, insurers will have to produce PRIIPS KID as early as January 2018 for each unit linked funds. Insurers will then have to collect from the asset managers the information necessary for this production.

Club Ampere, the European Working Group and other european associations had worked on the definition of the necessary information insurers and asset managers had to exchange for the PRIIPS KID production

The format they define is the so-called EPT Format (for European PRIIPs Template Format).

The EPT is more like a dictionnary of fields, it does not define the technical format (Excel, csv, separtors), nor the exchange method (mail, ftp...). Thus, the management companies are asked to produce EPTs in several file formats and distribute them throw differnt channels and Insurance companies has to collect, control and process the files.

In an effort to help you, we published freely our EPT file viewer. It'll help you when manipulating those files. For the remaining problems, continue reading...
