Joint Forum

The Joint Forum was established in 1996 under the aegis of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS), the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) and the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) to deal with issues common to the banking, securities and insurance sectors, including the regulation of financial conglomerates.

The Joint Forum is comprised of senior bank, insurance and securities supervisors from Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States. Its Secretariat is supported by the BCBS.

Banco de España actively participates in the Joint Forum initiatives.
