The article examines the International Organisation of Securities Commissions' (IOSCO) recent adoption of a consultation policy and procedure, paying particular attention to the issuance of international standards and principles for the securities sector. Last October, during an IOSCO open conference in New York City on regulators and the global marketplace, a crucial, although unheralded, presentation addressed the "convergence" of regulatory standards through the IOSCO process. IOSCO is directing its efforts increasingly to the development of "standards and principles" on a wide range of issues -- including complex security structures, market intermediaries, debt markets and corporate governance -- in an attempt to mould common solutions for its members.
