What actions does Julia need to take to certify herself as a self-employed professional at DSI? And for which register should she get certified?
As a financial sector, we have collectively decided that a DSI registration must be up-to-date. This ensures that everyone can trust the information in the Public Register is accurate. When applying for certification, we check, among other things, personal data through a screening procedure with Validata. This includes verifying your work experience for the new register, checking your ID, and possibly conducting a VOG (Certificate of Good Conduct) check. We do this for every application, change, and/or addition to ensure the accuracy of the data in the Public Register. More information can be found at www.dsi.nl/screening.
We understand that it may be inconvenient to undergo (again) a screening. You may have been in the DSI Public Register in the past and have already undergone a comprehensive assessment. However, each new application requires a new check because changes may have occurred of which we are not aware. We appreciate your understanding of this screening to ensure that all DSI registrations are up-to-date.
