About the CPMI
The Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI) is an international standard setter that promotes, monitors and makes recommendations about the safety and efficiency of payment, clearing, settlement and related arrangements, thereby supporting financial stability and the wider economy. It also serves as a forum for central bank cooperation in related oversight, policy and operational matters, including the provision of central bank services.

The CPMI's work
The CPMI carries out its mandate by:
- identifying risks for the safety and efficiency of payment, clearing and settlement systems and resulting risks for the global financial system
- sharing experiences related to payment, clearing and settlement systems, the performance of oversight functions and the provision of central bank services in order to promote common understanding, and developing policy advice or common policies for central banks
- establishing and promoting global standards and recommendations for the regulation, oversight and practices of payment, clearing and settlement systems
- monitoring the implementation of CPMI standards and recommendations
- supporting cooperative oversight and cross-border information-sharing, including crisis communication and contingency planning for cross-border crisis management
- maintaining relationships with non-CPMI central banks to share experiences and promote the implementation of CPMI standards and recommendations beyond member jurisdictions
- cooperating with other financial sector standard setters, central bank bodies and international financial institutions
