  Factsheet - IMF Surveillance
Surveillance in its present form was established by Article IV of the IMF Articles of Agreement as revised in the late 1970s after the collapse of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rate parities.
In line with the new Surveillance Decision, a priority is sharpening exchange rate assessments; one innovation is widening the set of countries to which the IMF applies its multilateral framework for assessing exchange rate misalignment.
To further improve the prioritization and accountability of surveillance institution-wide, the IMF is committed to adopt and periodically update, starting in 2008, a statement of time-bound surveillance priorities, which would cover both operational objectives (such as improving IMF exchange rate analysis) and economic objectives (such as contributing to the reduction of current global imbalances).
