Mandate of the Joint Forum

The Joint Forum is a group of senior financial sector supervisors working under the auspices of its parent committees: the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the International Organization of Securities Commissions and the International Association of Insurance Supervisors ('the Parent Committees').

The objective of the Joint Forum is to support banking, insurance and securities supervisors in meeting their regulatory and supervisory objectives and, more broadly, to contribute to the international regulatory agenda in particular where risks exist across or in gaps between the three supervised sectors.

In order to achieve this objective, the Joint Forum

The Joint Forum undertakes a work plan and mandates, endorsed by the Parent Committees, which are consistent with and reflect Parent Committee priorities. In doing so, the Joint Forum engages with other international bodies, industry and the broader supervisory community.
