For any positive integer n we denote by lambda(n) the unique integer such that n = 2(lambda(n)) c, where c is odd.

In the paper we prove that a permutation sigma of [1, n] with orbits O-1,..., O-m O m is a self-complementing permutation of a k-uniform hypergraph of order n if and only if there is an integer l >= 0 such that k = a2(l) + s, a is odd, 0 <= s <= 2(l) and the following two conditions hold:

(i)n = b2(l+1) + r,r is an element of {0,..., 2(l) - 1 + s}, and

(ii) Sigma(i:lambda(vertical bar Oi vertical bar)<= l) vertical bar O-i vertical bar <= r.

For k = 2 this result is the very well known characterization of self-complementing permutation of graphs given by Ringel and Sachs.
