Welcome to the IIC Small Nations Regulators Forum (SNRF).
The SNRF is one of the many positive examples of the IIC’s efforts to cater for all stakeholders. Its requirement of holding discussions under the Chatham House Rule fosters open debate and in-depth exchanges of views between regulators.
We are delighted to welcome Tim Ringsdore, Chief Executive of the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority, as our incoming Chair of the IIC Small Nations Regulators Forum for 2023 / 2024. Please view the press release here.
“I have the privilege of taking over the role of Chair of the IIC’s Small Nations Regulators Forum (SNRF) from Dr Allyson Leacock who has done a fantastic job over the last two years. Allyson will be a hard act to follow, however I will do my very best to lead the SNRF in the most effective way possible.”
A small nation is a country whose population is less than 0.1% of the world population – currently approximately 7.9 billion across 195 countries.
The Small Nations Regulators Forum was originally created as a result of an invitation-only IIC meeting supported by OfReg, the multisector regulatory authority of the Cayman Islands. Representatives from island nations agreed that particular issues were not unique to islands and countries with small populations and/or economies typically have more problems in terms of ensuring competition, enforcement and access, and it was felt valuable to share experiences and remedies.
The outputs from the programme may assist SNRF members to demonstrate how an effective regulator can ensure businesses are operating effectively and efficiently for the benefit of their communities and the economy.
SNRF membership included with IIC Regulator membership, for eligible Small Nations.
