Financial stability



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 Pay.UK, 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 Pay.UK​ considers the Bacs payment system measures against the CPSS-IOSCO principles, and is structured in accordance with the disclosure framework. It may be helpful to access a copy of the principles when reading the Bacs report, see the Information Hub to the right of your screen.
