Compliance Professional SA / CProf (SA)

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

We apply an integrated assessment process which includes work experience requirements which must be met. Candidates are required to complete a work experience log sheet and to provide evidence of the work experience claimed. This must be submitted to the Institute at the time when you register for the Board Exam II. Only candidates who hold a CPrac (SA) designation and has the relevant work experience will be permitted to write Board Exam II.


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.

Start your journey early and understand the requirements by the time you apply! 

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’ compliance-relevant work experience at a strategic level
