What effect does a change in your position have on your DSI certification?
When you change positions at work, that will have an effect on your DSI certification. The change in the substance of your work will most likely require you to become certified for a different DSI 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 change in the Public Register.
Sebastiaan works as a junior customer investment advisor, and has recently been promoted to the position of senior customer investment advisor. At the moment, he is certified in the Retail Investment Information Provider register. Due to the change in his position, he will have to become certified for the Retail Investment Advisor Standard Products register. Which steps will Sebastiaan have to take to change his DSI register?
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.
