International Organization of Securities Commissions

An international organization consisting of most security regulators in the world. For example, the SEC is a member of IOSCO. Other regulators, such as the CFTC, and self-regulatory organizations, such as the NYSE, may also participate in IOSCO, but not as full members. IOSCO seeks to provide an open forum for members and to establish a general framework for worldwide securities regulation, while also respecting the right of each country to regulate its own markets.
