The International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI) is the leading organisation in the field of deposit insurance. Formed in 2002, the aim of this organisation is to enhance the effectiveness of deposit insurance systems and the stability of the financial system by promoting common guidelines. It has its head office in the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland.
The IADI was created following the work of various multinational working groups (1999/2001) tasked by the Financial Stability Forum (now the Financial Stability Board (FSB)) to consider the development of international core principles for deposit insurance systems.
Its mission is to contribute to the enhancement of deposit insurance effectiveness by promoting guidance and international cooperation, and to contribute to the stability of financial systems by promoting international cooperation in the field of deposit insurance and providing guidance for establishing new, and enhancing existing, deposit insurance systems, and to encourage wide international contact among deposit insurers and other interested parties. To enhance deposit insurance effectiveness and meet its Members’ needs, IADI undertakes research and issues core principles and supporting guidance. The Core Principles for Effective Deposit Insurance Systems were first issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and IADI in June 2009, and (following the FSB Thematic Review on Deposit Insurance Systems) updated by IADI in October 2014. The Core Principles are approved by the Financial Stability Board. The European Commission collaborated to develop a Methodology for the Assessment of Compliance with Core Principles approved in December 2010, which includes a self-assessment, a Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP) conducted by the IMF and the World Bank, and comparative analysis programmes conducted by the Financial Stability Board and the G-20. The Methodology was submitted to the Financial Stability Board to be included in its set of 12 International Standards.
