1) The EIOPA failed to ensure (i) geographical balance and (ii) gender balance within and among the stakeholder categories of the IRSG and the OPSG as required by Article 37(4) of Regulation (EU) No 1094/2010.
2) The EIOPA failed to ensure an adequate balance between the representatives of the industry on the one hand and those of users and consumers on the other hand when selecting members of the IRSG and the OPSG.
3) The EIOPA adopted an incorrect definition of the different stakeholder categories provided for in Regulation (EU) No 1094/2010.
