IOSCO consults on cross-border regulation tools: IOSCO's Task Force on cross-border regulation has launched a consultation on a cross-border regulatory toolkit. The consultation is based on the results of an earlier survey of jurisdictions, which identified that the tools used in cross-border securities regulation fall broadly into three categories: national treatment, recognition and passporting. The consultation runs until 23 February 2015. The Task Force also has a mandate to help develop guidance on the coordinated use of the toolkit. (Source: IOSCO Task Force on Cross-Border Regulation)
