IADI is the worldwide association of deposit insurers.
It currently has 80 deposit insurers from 77 jurisdictions. IADI is a non-profit organization, established in May 2002 under Swiss Law. It is domiciled at the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland.
Its mandate is to promote international cooperation and provide guidance on DGS establishment and development. It organizes research and analyses into related topics, as well as international conferences and other forums.
The governing bodies of the Association are the General Meeting and the Executive Council. The IADI Executive Council (EXCO) has established four Council Committees: (i) Audit and Risk Council Committee; (ii) Member Relations Council Committee; (iii) Training and Technical Assistance Coumcil Committee; (iv) Core Principles and Research Council Committee. These Committees work in those specific areas on which the activities of the Association is based. There are eight Regional Committees for Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Caribbean, Eurasia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa, and North America. The regional committees provide a forum for issues, information sharing and ideas of common interest affecting members in their regions
IADI has become a standard setter for DGS. The revised IADI Core Principles for Effective Deposit Insurance Systems, released in 2009 and revised in 2014, have been recognized by the Financial Stability Board which added them in the Compendium of Standards, a set of principles for guidance globally.
FITD Director General, Dr. Giuseppe Boccuzzi, was elected Chair of the European Regional Committee (ERC) by the IADI Executive Council on March 2015, in Bogota.
