Issuer Regulation

The JSE currently acts as the frontline regulator, setting listings requirements and enforcing trading rul​es. The Financial Services Board (FSB) supervises the JSE in the commission of its regulatory duties and, as the JSE has no criminal or civil jurisdiction, processes any cases where legislation has been contravened.

The regulatory landscape is set to change significantly in the near future, as South Africa looks to implement a twin peaks model of oversight. Under the new system, prudential supervision will be transferred to the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) and market conduct regulation will be led by a bolstered FSB.

The JSE will continue to act as frontline regulator, reporting to the FSB as the lead regulator. This concept was endorsed in 2012 to avoid overlaps in jurisdiction between the FSB and the Reserve Bank.

South Africa was ranked third in the world in terms of the regulation of securities exchanges in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Survey for 2016- 2017. This is an accolade for both the JSE and its regulators.​.
