**FACTOR FOR GEOGRAPHICAL DIVERSIFICATION OF PREMIUM AND RESERVE RISK **

1.For all segments set out in Annexes II and XIV, the factor for geographical diversification of a particular segment *s* referred to in Articles 116 and 147 shall be equal to the following:

where:

- each of the sums cover all the geographical regions set out in paragraph 8;
*V(prem,r,s)*denotes the volume measure for premium risk of the segment*s*and the region*r*;*V(res,r,s)*denotes volume measure for reserve risk of the segment*s*and the region*r*.

2.For all segments set out in Annexes II and XIV and all geographical regions set out in paragraph 8, the volume measure for premium risk of a particular segment *s* and a particular region *r* shall be calculated in the same way as the volume measure for non-life or NSLT health premium risk of the segment *s* as referred to in Articles 116 and 147, but taking into account only insurance and reinsurance obligations where the underlying risk is situated in the region *r*.

3.For all segments set out in Annexes II and XIV and all geographical regions set out in paragraph 8, the volume measure for reserve risk of a particular segment *s* and a particular region *r* shall be calculated in the same way as the volume measure for non-life or NSLT health reserve risk of the segment *s* as referred to in Articles 116 and 147, but taking into account only insurance and reinsurance obligations where the underlying risk is situated in the region *r*.

4.For the purpose of the calculations set out in paragraphs 2 and 3, the criteria set out in Article 13(13) of Directive 2009/138/EC in the case of non-life insurance and the criteria set out in Article 13(14) of Directive 2009/138/EC in the case of life insurance (in either case as that Directive applied immediately before IP completion day) shall be applied as if references in those criteria to Member States extended to regions also.

5.Notwithstanding paragraph 1, the factor for geographical diversification shall be equal to 1 for segments 6, 10, 11 and 12 set out in Annex II and for segment 4 set out in Annex XIV.

6.Notwithstanding paragraph 1, the factor for geographical diversification for a segment set out in Annex II shall be equal to 1 if insurance and reinsurance undertakings use an undertaking-specific parameter for the standard deviation for non-life premium risk or non-life reserve risk of the segment to calculate the non-life premium and reserve risk sub-module.

7.Notwithstanding paragraph 1, the factor for geographical diversification for a segment set out in Annex XIV shall be equal to 1 if insurance and reinsurance undertakings use an undertaking-specific parameter for the standard deviation for NSLT health premium risk or NSLT health reserve risk of the segment to calculate the NSLT health premium and reserve risk sub-module.

**INTEGRATION TECHNIQUES FOR PARTIAL INTERNAL MODELS **

A. **General provisions**

(1)For the purposes of this Annex, the following definitions shall apply:

- ‘unit of the partial internal model’ is a component of the partial internal model that is separately calculated and not aggregated within the partial internal model;

(2)Where insurance and reinsurance undertakings apply integration techniques 1 to 5, their Solvency Capital Requirement shall be the sum of the following items:

- the Basic Solvency Capital Requirements as laid down in sections C to F;
- the capital requirement for operational risk as laid down in regulation 98 of the Insurance Companies Regulations, where that capital requirement is not within the scope of the partial internal model, and calculated with the partial internal model, where that capital requirement is within the scope of the partial internal model;
- the adjustment for the loss-absorbing capacity of technical provisions and deferred taxes, as laid down in paragraph 3, where that adjustment is not within the scope of the partial internal model, and calculated with the partial internal model where that adjustment is within the scope of the partial internal model.

(3)Where the adjustment for the loss-absorbing capacity of technical provisions and deferred taxes is not within the scope of the partial internal model, it shall be calculated as laid down in Articles 205 to 207, but with the following changes:

- the Basic Solvency Capital Requirement referred to in Articles 206(1) and (2) and 207(1) is calculated in accordance with sections B to F;
- points (a) to (d) of Article 206(2) apply only to calculations with the standard formula;
- for the purposes of Article 206(2) the capital requirements used in the calculation of the Basic Solvency Capital Requirement that are calculated with the partial internal take into account the risk-mitigating effect provided by future discretionary benefits of insurance contracts;
- the capital requirement for operational risk referred to in Article 207(1)(c) is calculated in accordance with paragraph 2(b).

B. **Integration technique 1**

The Basic Solvency Capital Requirement shall be equal to the sum of the capital requirements for the units of the partial internal model, the capital requirement derived by applying the standard formula for the Basic Solvency Capital Requirement only to the risks that are out of the scope of the partial internal model and the capital requirement for intangible asset risk as set out in Article 203.
