Cabinet clears IRDAI signing pact for information exchange
 
New Delhi, Jul 19 (PTI) The Cabinet today gave ex-post facto approval for regulator Irdai's admission as a signatory to IAIS Multilateral Memorandum of Understanding amid increasing integration of financial markets, a release said.

"The MMoU is a statement of its signatories' intent to cooperate in the field of information exchange as well as procedure for handling information requests," said the official statement after the Cabinet meeting.

With increasing integration of financial market and growing number of internationally active insurance companies there is an increased need for mutual cooperation and information exchange between insurance industry supervisors.

In this background the Irdai had become a signatory member of the MMoU, the release said.

"In the absence of any bilateral agreements the IAIS, MMoU provides a formal basis for cooperation and information exchange between the signatory authorities regarding the supervision of insurance companies where cross-border aspects arise," the release said.
