Supporting Documents Country FSAPs

Last updated: Tuesday, June 10, 2014


The Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP), established in 1999, is a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of a country’s financial sector. It is a key instrument of the Fund’s surveillance and provides input to the Article IV consultation. In addition to the main document that concludes an FSAP for an individual country, the Financial System Stability Assessment, this page also offers access to supporting country FSAP documents, such as Technical Notes, which provide additional background information and analyses, and Detailed Assessments of Observance of relevant financial sector standards and codes, which are generally produced as part of FSAP assessments.
