Core Principles

“The Revised Core Principles for Effective Deposit Insurance Systems were developed for the benefit of jurisdictions considering the adoption or reform of a deposit insurance system. The Revised Core Principles are designed to enhance the effectiveness of deposit insurance systems and are based on IADI research and guidance papers and the endorsement by IADI of guidance developed by several founding IADI members and other organisations under the leadership of the Financial Stability Forum's (FSF) Working Group on Deposit Insurance in 2001 and the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Policy Dialogue on Deposit Insurance. In June 2009, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and IADI jointly issued the Core Principles for Effective Deposit Insurance Systems. The Core Principles were subsequently revised and submitted to the Financial Stability Board (FSB), in November 2014, for inclusion within the FSB’s Compendium of Key International Standards of Financial Stability.”
