The South African Restructuring and Insolvency Practitioners Association NPC (SARIPA) is a non-profit organisation, constituted in 1986, with a countrywide membership of over 700 qualified Insolvency Practitioners, Business Restructuring Professionals, Chartered Accountants, Lawyers, Bankers, Academics, Tax Consultants and others involved in liquidation, insolvency and business rescue services. The South African courts, regulators and financial institutions have come to recognise SARIPA as a dynamic organisation effectively representing the business rescue and insolvency professions.

SARIPA furthers its members' best interests though its ongoing commitment to transformation and the education of all relevant stakeholders. Through open dialogue with its members and other sectors of the economy, SARIPA builds on its achievements and confronts its challenges, focusing on issues that directly affect how members manage their firms and practices. Through SARIPA's recognition and empowerment, professional members are making their mark on business rescue and insolvency practice, thereby collectively making real contributions to the local economy.

As SARIPA members, this is our organization, and we work together to achieve our goals.
