Secured Transactions Systems & Collateral Registries Toolkit

The Secured Transactions Systems and Collateral Registries Toolkit provides technical advice and guidance to World Bank Group staff, donor institutions, government officials and other practitioners on the implementation of secured transactions law and institutional reforms in emerging market countries. The content of the Toolkit guides the reader through the various stages of the project cycle (identification, diagnostic, solution design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation) involved in the introduction of secured transactions reforms.

The recommendations presented in the Toolkit are based on IFC’s experience in the secured transactions area, the contributions of a number of experts in this field, existing literature, and reform experience in a number of emerging market countries and the existing best practices in jurisdictions with advanced secured transactions systems. The Toolkit addresses the most important elements of reform.
