Types of membership

A member means a public entity which has a financial market conduct and financial consumer protection supervision mandate. It can include national and regional authorities including supervisory authorities, regulatory authorities, ministries of finance or central banks.  Only Members have a right to vote.

An associate means a public national or international entity which does not meet all of the criteria to be a Member but which is considering the establishment of a financial market conduct supervisory regime and is interested in becoming a member over time.

An observer is an interested party that does not fulfil the criteria to be an Associate Member but has a direct and demonstrated interest in, and commitment to, the effectiveness of financial market conduct and financial consumer protection supervision; and may include international and non-governmental organisations.
