What effect does a change in your employer and register have on your DSI certification?
When you change both employers and registers, the changes will have an effect on your DSI certification. The position will most likely involve different activities than the work at your current employer, which means you will have to become certified for a different register. The important thing is that you keep your DSI certification up-to-date, and that you communicate any changes to DSI on time. That will give us both enough opportunities to check the changes and guarantee the correctness of your registration in the Public Register.
Ellen works as a Private Banker at ABN AMRO. For her position, she has been certified in the Retail Investment Advisor Custom Products register since 2019. Next month, she will start working as an Investment Analyst at Triodos Bank. The change in employer and position will also change her DSI certification. What should Ellen do to ensure that she has the correct DSI certification?
As a sector, we have jointly decided that a DSI registration must be kept up-to-date. That way, everyone can trust that the information in the Public Register is correct. When changes or additions are made to a certification, we check certain criteria by means of a screening procedure conducted by Validata. We do this for every change and/or addition to guarantee the accuracy of the data in the Public Register.
We understand that it may be frustrating to go through the screening process again. After all, you are already listed in the Public Register, and have already completed an exhaustive screening. Nevertheless, every change requires a new check, because other changes may have taken place that we are not aware of. We ask for your patience with this additional screening, so that we can all ensure that every DSI register is kept up-to-date.
