About IADI

The International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI) was formed in May 2002 to enhance the effectiveness of deposit insurance systems by promoting guidance and international cooperation. Members of IADI conduct research and produce guidance for the benefit of those jurisdictions seeking to establish or improve a deposit insurance system. Members also share their knowledge and expertise through participation in international conferences and other forums. 

IADI currently represents 89 deposit insurers. IADI is a non-profit organisation constituted under Swiss Law and is domiciled at the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland.

Please see 
About IADI for more information on the objectives and activities of the Association.

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.”
