This article provides some background on the development of pension regulation in OECD countries and makes some passing references to non-OECD countries. It then evaluates the role of regulation and assesses the delicate question of the level of regulation needed to ensure an efficient functioning of the system. The article next describes the process and thinking that led to the development of international standards for occupational pension systems. It then assesses the related question of supervision and evaluates the emerging models of supervisory structures and methods. Finally, the article takes a look into what the future might hold for occupational pensions and their regulatory and supervisory frameworks.
