On 3 September there is a telematics broadcast of a presentation done earlier this year at the FSB offices in Pretoria. Those unable to attend will be able to share and discuss the Regulator’s views on the following topics:
- Maintaining a license
- Regulatory action
- Business practices
- Council for Medical Schemes approvals
You need to register on the FSB website. The rest of the year’s schedule is also available here, in PDF format.
Provision is also made for those unable to attend. Moonstone obtains a DVD of the actual broadcast within days, and distributes this to interested parties via registered or overnight mail, counter-to-counter delivery. Many FSPs prefer this option, using the DVD for in-house training.
