To do this, 29 countries were surveyed (Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada (Quebec), Chile, China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Ethiopia, Germany, India, Japan, Kenya,Mexico, Morocco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam.) The report focuses on the regulations in each country, the institutional framework, the terms of offsetting, and the operation of compensation banks where these exist. It also provides summaries of the methodological framework for equivalence developed in the United States, Australia, Switzerland, Germany and the United Kindgom.
