International Cooperation

It is important for the CMF to maintain an active international presence within the international organizations in which it participates.

This presence allows access to the best practices in regulation and supervision, participation in the discussion of the establishment of global guidelines and principles, as well as granting greater visibility to our markets worldwide.

The most important international organizations in which this Commission participates include: the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), the Association of Insurance Supervisors of Latin America (ASSAL), the Association of Supervisors of Banks of the Americas (ASBA), and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS). It should be noted that each of them has committees and working groups of a high technical level.


It is the international organization that brings together almost all the securities regulators around the world and is recognized as the organization that develops, implements and promotes the compliance of international standards recognized for the regulation of securities. IOSCO works intensively with the G20 and the Financial Stability Board (FSB) on the global regulatory reform agenda at a global level.

The objectives and principles of the regulations of securities of IOSCO are the fundamental global principles, internationally recognized, that serve as guidance in the development and implementation of regulation, supervision and enforcement standards.

The CMF participates as an ordinary member since its inception and it has been part of several studies carried out by the aforementioned organization.

It is also a member of the Inter-American Regional Committee (IARC) and the Growth and Emerging Markets Committee (GEMC).

The CMF is signatory to the IOSCO MMOU since November 2018.
