The Bacs payment system is recognised by HM Treasury for oversight by the Bank of England. In this respect Bacs is defined as a Financial Market Infrastructure, and consequently NPSO Limited, which became the operator of the Bacs payment system on 1 May 2018, assesses and discloses how it meets a set of international principles designed to ensure stability.
The Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures: Disclosure framework and assessment methodology are published by the Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems and the Board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (CPSS-IOSCO).
The report sets out how NPSO considers the Bacs payment system measures against the CPSS-IOSCO principles, and is structured in accordance with the disclosure framework.
