MEMORANDA OF UNDERSTANDING

International

INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION

List of Memoranda of Understanding in place with overseas regulatory authorities

The Commission does not require a Memorandum of Understanding to be in place with an overseas regulatory authority before it will co-operate with or share information with that authority. The purpose of a Memorandum of Understanding is to establish an agreed mechanism under which the signatories commit to using their statutory powers of co-operation to assist each other.

The Commission has entered into Memoranda of Understanding on regulatory matters with a number of fellow regulatory authorities.
These Memoranda cover regulatory assistance to be given in the context of:

  • New applications for licensing by financial institutions;
  • Investigations into regulatory offences such as insider dealing; and
  • General enquiries that are relevant to the fitness and properness of registered institutions.

Please Note:

1. Memoranda dated prior to 1 July 2005 may contain references to articles in Jersey legislation the numbers of which may have subsequently changed.

2. Where the other authority has not consented to the text of the Memorandum being made publicly available, no pdf version of the Memorandum will appear in the list below.

The list below also includes 'Letters of Intent' and 'Statements of Co-operation'. Such letters/statements commit the Commission and the other regulatory authority to work towards closer regulatory co-operation.
