The IIC is committed to helping policy makers and regulators find the best regulatory and policy frameworks for the widest societal benefit.
IIC membership provides the only independent international forum that brings together statutory national regulators in a collegiate, neutral environment to debate policy issues. There is one International Regulators’ Forum (IRF) each year and other regional events throughout the year. All members receive a report of meetings regardless of whether they are able to attend and all members receive the IIC’s Yearbook summarising discussions that have taken place throughout the year.
