The Building Societies Association or BSA was originally established in 1869. It is the voice for all 43 UK building societies as well as 6 credit unions.
Together these organisations serve around 25 million customers up and down the length of the UK.
The BSA’s objective is to push for the best outcomes for building societies and our other members from the plethora of new and changing regulation and legislation in the UK and Europe.
To do this we work with, amongst others, the UK Government, the EU Commission, Council and Parliament and regulators, especially the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). In Europe we are a member of the European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB).
