IOSCO reports on implementation of G20/FSB recommendations
November 8, 2017

The Board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) says it has today published a report on the implementation of the G20/FSB post-crisis recommendations aimed at strengthening securities markets.  

It says the Implementation Report: G20/FSB Recommendations related to Securities Markets was prepared by its Assessment Committee and is designed to provide further clarity on the recommendations and the role of securities market regulators in overseeing how these recommendations are implemented. For this report, IOSCO says it co-ordinated with the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to analyze responses to the FSB's 2017 Implementation Monitoring Network (IMN) survey.

The Report finds that most responding jurisdictions have taken steps to implement the G20/FSB recommendations and IOSCO guidance in each of the designated areas.  Similar to last year, implementation is most advanced with respect to hedge funds, structured products and securitization, and the monitoring of credit rating agencies (CRAs). In the area of safeguarding the integrity and efficiency of markets, where progress in implementation has lagged, jurisdictions reported that they have undertaken some work to harmonize and strengthen their rules.

The report covers the following areas:

·       Hedge funds;

·       Structured products and securitization;

·       Monitoring of credit rating agencies;

·       Measures to safeguard the integrity and efficiency of markets;

·       Commodity derivative markets.
