BankservAfrica is recognised as a systemically important Financial Market Infrastructure by the South African Reserve Bank.   In 2014, the company undertook a self- assessment in terms of the Principles for Financial Market Infrastructure published by the Bank for International Settlements. This self-assessment report was submitted to the SARB in April 2014. Following a review by SARB, BankservAfrica has published in full the 2014 self-assessment.  Readers should note that the self-assessment report was concluded over two years ago and that many aspects of the organisation have changed.  BankservAfrica will publish a revised assessment annually.  The latest full report dated January 2017 is available below.
