Recognised, Independent Professional Body

The Compliance Institute SA is a South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) recognised professional body and has two registered professional designations:
Compliance Practitioner (CPrac)
Compliance Professional (CProf)


The CProf (SA) designation focuses on the strategic aspects of compliance. 

Please note that passing the Board Exam is not the only requirement to obtain a designation. The Board Exam forms part of an integrated assessment process which includes work experience requirements which must be met. Candidates are therefore required to complete the work experience log sheet and to provide evidence of the work experience claimed. This has to be submitted to the Institute at the time when you register for the board exam. Only candidates who meet the qualification and relevant work experience requirements will be permitted to write the Board Exam.

Minimum requirements for Compliance Professional

The requirements determine whether a member is eligible to receive, retain, renew or lose a professional designation. This ensures that awarding or revoking of the designation is transparent and consistent in terms of range, depth and difficulty.

The awarding criteria are based on the following:
    • You must be a member of the Institute and in good standing
    • You must already be in possession of the CPrac (SA) designation
    • You must have an additional 3 years’ relevant work experience at a strategic level
    • Board Exam results
