Rating agency Brickwork, on October 14, said it did not receive any order from market-regulator Securities and exchange board of India (SEBI) on cancellation of its rating license.

"There is no order from SEBI for the cancellation of our Ratings license," a statement from Brickwork rating said. "We wish to assure all our stakeholders that it is business-as-usual on all fronts for Brickwork," the Brickwork statement added.

The statement came in the backdrop of a media report that said SEBI will cancel the permit of Brickwork ratings due to repeated rating lapses.

"There have been some speculative media reports recently about regulatory action on Brickwork Ratings...Brickwork Ratings is a professionally managed organization with a high level of operational independence, providing the market and investors with the ratings of the highest credibility," the agency said.

"Brickwork has always followed the highest standards for issuing ratings, incorporating strong internal checks and balances," the statement added.

Further, the agency clarified that IL&FS was not rated by Brickwork Ratings and "hence there is no case pending against us for the same." IL&FS was rated by some other large credit rating agencies, it said.

Brickwork is one of the seven SEBI-registered credit rating agencies. The others are Crisil, Care, Icra, Fitch, Infomerics Ratings and Acuité Ratings & Research.
