The National Credit Regulator is a managing body, established under the National Credit Act 34 of 2005, responsible for the regulation of the credit industry in South Africa. As the guiding force of ethical credit management, it falls onto them to ensure the rules of credit dealing are followed.
The NCR and the NCA
It is up to the NCR to carry out education surrounding the Act, as well as research, policy development, registration of industry participants, investigation of complaints, and ensuring enforcement of the National Credit Act. This means that the Regulator must promote the development of an accessible credit market. This puts a key focus on addressing the short falls surrounding the credit of historically disadvantaged individuals, low-income areas of the population, as well as remote, isolated communities – seeking to make credit accessible to all who need it.
The responsibility surrounding the registration of credit providers, credit bureaus and debt counsellors also falls onto the National Credit Regulator, including ensuring all participants comply with the Act in totality.
