IAA Admits its 73rd Full Member Association — the Actuarial Assoc3iation of Sri Lanka

The International Actuarial Association (IAA) is pleased to announce that it has admitted the Actuarial Association of Sri Lanka (AASL) as its 73rd Full Member association. The AASL, established in 2008, has a membership comprising 16 fully qualified actuaries and is currently led by President Thanuja Krishnaratna.

The AASL objectives include: setting and safeguarding the code of professional ethics and conduct; promoting and strengthening the profession in Sri Lanka and abroad; and, developing, upholding and promoting, in the public interest, the highest standards of professional education and practice.

Admission as a Full Member follows a thorough process that includes a review of the applicant association’s education program; code of professional conduct; formal discipline process; and, where applicable, formal process for the adoption of standards of practice. The Membership Committee reviews each of these documents to ensure compliance with IAA requirements, and the Education Committee determines whether the education requirements for a particular association or programme meet the standards set down in the IAA Education Syllabus and Guidelines.

This activity contributes towards achieving the IAA’s strategic objective to support the development, organization and promotion of the actuarial profession in areas of the world in which it is not present or is not fully developed.
