International Cooperation

With regard to international cooperation, IFIAR Members agreed to the proposal that the International Cooperation Working Group study examples of ways in which Members might exchange information, including inspection reports, and how Members may cooperate in the oversight of global firms.  These topics are currently being considered further by the International Cooperation Working Group.

The working group holds frequent meetings by conference call throughout the year.

The group is Chaired by Martijn Duffels from the AFM, and includes IFIAR Members from Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK and the United States.
