Code of Conduct for Crypto Asset Service Providers

The South African government agency charged with investigating and resolving complaints in terms of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services (FAIS) Act recently said it can now “investigate complaints against existing registered financial service providers who offer advice on cryptocurrency.” According to the agency, which is known as the Office of the FAIS Ombud, the recent designation of crypto assets as financial products has made this possible.

In a news article published on its website, the dispute resolution agency said crypto-related complaints can only be filed against registered financial service providers (FSP) who must adhere to the country’s General Code of Conduct for authorized FSPs. This code requires “material disclosures, conducting a needs analysis and recommending a product that is appropriate to one’s needs and circumstances.”

Only Three Complaints Filed

i alla fall, according to the remarks by the agency’s Thuso Ngwagwe published by Moneyweb, all complaints lodged with the Office of the FAIS Ombud prior to the Financial Sector Conduct Authority’s crypto asset designation will not be considered. In the report, Ngwagwe reiterated the agency’s assertion that it lacks jurisdiction.

“All complaints received prior to 19 oktober 2022 in respect of investments made into cryptocurrency were dismissed by this Office as we did not have jurisdiction to entertain these matters,” Ngwagwe reportedly said.

According to Ngwagwe, the Office of the FAIS Ombud received a total of eight cryptocurrency-related complaints during the 2022/23 financial year. i alla fall, only “three occurred after 19 oktober 2022 and will [therefore] be considered.” The rest of the complaints will not be considered and cannot be resubmitted, Ngwagwe added.

For individuals with complaints that fall within its jurisdiction, the Office of the FAIS Ombud advised visiting its portal and making a formal complaint.
