IAGR’s Advisory Sub-Committees provide a crucial function, providing participating members with significant benefits.

Consisting of specialist representatives from IAGR’s Board of Trustees and membership group, the Advisory Sub-Committees draw on subject matter experts to:

  • Provide a forum to exchange best practice
  • Help develop IAGR policy positions and support advocacy
  • Provide support for legal and regulatory compliance
  • Identify common challenges and opportunities impacting all regulators and engage on potential responses through working groups

Each Advisory Sub-Committee is chaired by an industry representative and supported by both a committee of member experts and the IAGR support team. The Advisory committees work to facilitate engagement with regulators and stakeholders and help members adapt to changes affecting the industry. This ensures they can apply solutions and leverage the shared experience and knowledge of participants to support the IAGR membership.

Regulators connected with IAGR through its Advisory Sub-Committees obtain the full benefits of IAGR membership. Participating regulators enjoy exposure to thought leadership and industry practice and shape the voice of IAGR into the future through their input.
