The International Organisation of Pension Supervisors (IOPS) is an independent international body representing those involved in the supervision of private pension arrangements.


Formed in July 2004, the IOPS was instigated by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the International Network of Pension Regulators and Supervisors (INPRS).


The major goal of the IOPS is to improve the quality and effectiveness of the supervision of private pension systems throughout the world, thereby enhancing their development and operational efficiency, and allowing for the provision of a secure source of retirement income in as many countries as possible.


IOPS currently has 86 Members and Observers representing 75 jurisdictions and territories worldwide. The organisation cooperates closely with other international organisations involved in pension supervision policy development and dialogue, including the OECD, the World Bank, ISSA, IAIS and IMF.
