IOSCO MMoU/EMMoU Training Workshop, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 12-14 November 2019 – Registration Open
The IOSCO MMoU/EMMoU Training Workshop will be held on 12 – 14 November 2019 at the IOSCO Asia-Pacific Hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This 3-day workshop, targeted at MMoU signatories and members who expect to sign soon, will focus on the MMoU practicalities with a view to provide a guide on the efficient use of the MMoU/EMMoU and the pre-requisites for becoming an EMMoU signatory. Moreover, the workshop will cover the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Administrative Arrangement (AA) for the transfer of personal data between EEA and non-EEA authorities.
Participating jurisdictions are expected to designate staff of the Enforcement or International Cooperation Department (or similar) to attend the workshop. In particular, those who will benefit the most are those members of staff who are either in charge of receiving MMoU requests for assistance or drafting and sending those requests. Also, we encourage attendance from those jurisdictions currently preparing its EMMoU application or considering applying.
There is no cost to attend the workshop and travel and hotel accommodation costs are the responsibility of the attendee and their authority. The deadline for registration is 24 October 2019.

IOSCO and the Program on International Financial Systems at Harvard Law School (PIFS-HLS) jointly developed this two-phase program to offer IOSCO members an executive education program that is exclusively tailored for regulators of securities markets. Attendees have up to three years to complete both phases of the Global Certificate Program. Successful attendees will be awarded a joint certificate of participation issued by IOSCO and PIFS-Harvard Law School. Also, IOSCO members may attend any part of the program on a non-certificate basis. Following the inauguration of the program in 2016, it is envisaged that going forward both phases will be conducted once every year.
Phase I consists of three components: online learning materials; an in-person module on regulation (17-21 June 2019); and an in-person module on compliance (24-28 June 2019). The in-person modules will be conducted at IOSCO´s premises in Madrid (Spain) from 17-28 June 2019, and will cover the fundamentals and intricacies of securities regulation and compliance. These two week-long sessions will be delivered primarily by current or former securities regulators. It is possible to register for either one or both modules. Phase I is offered free of charge to all IOSCO members. Online registration is now closed.
Phase II consists of a one week-long in-person module that will be conducted on campus at the Harvard Law School in Cambridge (Massachusetts, US) from 9-13 December. This one week-long session will examine current and future regulatory challenges and emerging issues and will be delivered by leading academics, securities regulators and public policy makers. Phase II is open to all IOSCO members. The tuition fee for Phase II at Harvard Law School is USD 7,000. Online registration is now open. Deadline to register is November 15th.
While any IOSCO member employee may attend the program, it is specifically designed for regulatory staff with strong leadership potential and approximately five to seven years of regulatory experience.
