The Regulatory Authority works closely with a number of public entities and professional organisations on the joint efforts of strengthening Qatar’s regulatory framework and building a legacy of regulation for the State.
Qatar plays an active leadership role in the support of initiatives that develop national standards and international best practices for the financial sector. The Regulatory Authority pursues compliance with the principles and standards of the international financial standard-setters, among them the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the International Association of Insurance Supervisors, the International Organization of Securities Commissions, the Financial Action Task Force, and the Islamic Financial Services Board.
The Regulatory Authority continuously strives to be at the forefront of international standards. We have many initiatives that align our regulatory efforts with the standards and principles of these international organisations.
