The vision of the South African Board for Sheriffs is to be a board that is transparent, and responsive to the needs of the sheriff's profession; promotes a professional sheriff's service that is respectful and efficient to deliver justice to all with integrity and accountability; and is accountable in terms of our legislative mandate and strives to entrench the human rights culture envisaged by the Constitution.

The core business of the South African Board for Sheriffs is to: transform the sheriff's profession, the SA Board for Sheriffs and its staff, and bring it in line with constitutional imperatives; review legislation and all other relevant legislation and, if necessary, lobby for reform in a manner which protects the interests of the sheriff's profession and all stakeholders; communicate effectively with all stakeholders and sheriffs; discipline sheriffs; monitor the conduct of sheriffs; promote professionalism; set standards for training of persons who are, or intend participating in the sheriff's profession; set up the necessary training programmes; formulate policy directives; and ensure effective management of the Board and its office.
