Insurance Core Principles

The International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) mission is to promote effective and globally consistent supervision of the insurance industry.
The primary objective of the IAIA is to maintain stable insurance markets for the benefit and protection of policy-holders and to contribute to global financial stability.
The IAIS coordinates its work with other international financial associations or regulators, and assists in shaping financial systems globally.

The International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) is a voluntary membership organization of insurance supervisors and regulators from nearly 140 countries.
Established in 1994, the IAIS is the international standard setting body responsible for developing principles, standards for the supervision of the insurance business.
The Insurance Core Principles (ICPs) provide a globally accepted framework for the supervision of the insurance sector.
The Insurance Core Principles were initially adopted on 1 October 2011.
The IAIS also is routinely called upon by the G20 leaders for input on insurance issues and on issues related to the regulation of the global financial sector.
