30 June 2017 is the so called DOFA date for candidates who are obliged to write and pass the Regulatory Examinations (REs) within the prescribed period.
A candidate’s date of first appointment (DOFA) refers to the time a person was first appointed in the industry.
This is regarded as the point of departure to determine by when a person has to successfully complete the REs.
The next DOFA deadline applies to those appointed between 30 June 2014 and 29 June 2015.
Compliance officers, including those in the UK, are obliged to write the RE 1 Key Individual exam before 31 August 2017.
Should you be required to comply with this deadline, please urgently contact Marietjie Grant. You can also phone her on +27 21 883 8000.
We require a minimum of 20 candidates to present a special exam session in the UK. This could include compliance officers.
