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 commissioned Portfolio of Evidence (POE) and supporting CV as part of the application process.  Only candidates who hold a CPrac (SA) designation and has the relevant work experience will be permitted to apply for the designation and be considered for the designation assessment process.


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.
