Important FAIS CPD exemption notification

Please see below statement issued by the FSCA as it relates to FAIS CPD activities required for South African regulatory purposes. 

FSCA FAIS Notice 35 of 2019.pdf    

Explanatory Note.pdf

CFA Society South Africa is delighted to announce the recent CPD exemption that applies to, amongst others, CFA charterholders

The exemption allows for any CFA Institute Continuing Education (CE) verifiable activity as “extended CPD activities” provided that it is:

  • Relevant to functions and role of the CFA charterholder
  • Contributes to the skill, knowledge and expertise
  • Address identified gaps in technical and generic knowledge and
  • Adequately takes into account changing internal and external conditions relevant to financial services and financial products

Proof of your CFA Institute membership and completion of such “extended CPD activities ” can be submitted for verifiable CPD hours in terms of FAIS.

Please note: 

CFA Society South Africa does not manage CFA Institute CE credits and therefore cannot assist with loading and recording of CE credits.

Members are required to obtain their own records and certificates for qualifying “extended CPD activities”

Self-verified and self-attested CE credits will not count as CPD verifiable credits.

Based on the new development CFA Institute are issuing verification letters as an interim solution however, they are in the process of improving their CPD tools and the member experience. This includes allowing members to self-serve when it comes to printing CE certificates, verification letters, and lists of their activities.
