The Equator Principles Association - Governance & Management

The Equator Principles (EP) Association is the unincorporated association of member Equator Principles Financial Institutions (EPFIs) whose object is the management, administration and development of the EPs. The EP Association was formed on 1 July 2010 and was instituted to ensure long-term viability and ease of management of the member EPFIs.

The EP Association is governed by a set of Governance Rules which provide guidance to existing and prospective EPFIs on the processes for the management, administration and development of the EPs.

The EP Association Steering Committee co-ordinates the administration, management and development of the EPs on behalf of the member EPFIs.

There are 10 members of the EP Association Steering Committee:

Chair - Standard Bank

Regional representatives:

- Latin America: Itau Unibanco

- Asia-Oceana: Mizuho Bank

- North America - Export Development Canada

- Middle East & Africa: First Rand

The most recent EP Association Governance Rules (April 2017) detail the scope of the roles of the EP Association Steering Committee and how representatives are nominated and appointed.
