DSI stopped screening professionals

Deel deze pagina

Starting from 1 April 2022, it is no longer possible to request a DSI screening if the screening is not part of a DSI certification process. DSI will cease conducting screenings entirely as of 30 June 2022. DSI will continue with screenings as part of a DSI certification request for the time being.

Focus on core task

The DSI Foundation has decided to scale back DSI’s screening activities in 2022. This choice was motivated by the foundation’s aim to focus on its core task. DSI was founded more than 20 years ago as a self-regulation institution for the financial sector. DSI Foundation’s core task is to work with the sector to ensure that society has greater trust in the financial sector. DSI does that by:

  • Formulating norms for knowledge, skills en integrity;
  • Accrediting examinations and educational programmes;
  • Certifying professionals who meet the stated DSI norms, and listing these professionals in the DSI Public Register;
  • Holding Certified Professionals accountable for violations of the DSI Code of Conduct through DSI Ethics Enforcement.

DSI will process current screening requests until 1 May 2022.

DSI will continue to process screening requests received before 1 April 2022. Professionals that had a request open on 1 April 2022 will have until 1 May 2022 to submit all of the necessary information. If the submission is not complete by then, DSI will no longer issue a screening report.

All open screening requests must be completed by no later than 30 April 2022.

On 1 May 2022, all screening requests with the following statuses will be archived:

  • Status ‘New’
  • Status ‘Incomplete’
  • Status ‘Not complete’

DSI will no longer issue screening reports for these screening requests after the deadline.

Special rate for screenings with the status ‘Not complete’

DSI will not send an invoice for every open screening request. Screening requests with the status ‘Not complete’ on 1 May 2022 will be billed for only 50% of the relevant screening fee. A standard DSI Pre-Employment Screening will cost € 67 ex VAT, or 50% of € 134 ex VAT. DSI will charge this amount for screening requests with the status ‘Not complete’, because DSI Screening Officers have worked on the requests and the request has been returned to the applicant to respond to feedback from DSI. This is not the case for other statuses, such as ‘Incomplete’, for which the DSI Screening Officers have not yet begun work.

The MijnDSI Employer Portal dashboard shows which screenings are linked to you as an employer, and their status.
