INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF
SECURITIES COMMISSIONS

The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) is the international body that brings together the world´s securities regulators and is recognized as the global standard setter for the securities sector. IOSCO develops, implements and promotes adherence to internationally recognized standards for securities regulation. It works intensively with the G20 and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) on the global regulatory reform agenda and to address emerging financial vulnerabilities that could affect global financial stability.

IOSCO was established in 1983. Its membership regulates more than 95% of the world's securities markets in some 130 jurisdictions and includes all the major emerging markets.

The IOSCO Objectives and Principles of Securities Regulation have been endorsed by both the G20 and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) as the relevant standards in this area. They are IOSCO´s main instrument to develop and implement internationally recognized and consistent standards of regulation, oversight and enforcement. They form the basis for the evaluation of the securities sector for the Financial Sector Assessment Programs (FSAPs) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
