Certification - Employer

  • Is DSI certification obligatory?

    DSI was founded at the initiative of the financial sector in order to give form to the sector’s self-regulation activities. There is no legal requirement to be affiliated with or certified by DSI. However, financial firms do have a legal obligation to guarantee fair and honest operations. DSI helps in this by promoting and monitoring the expertise and integrity of financial professionals. DSI has signed a covenant with the supervisory body, the Financial Markets Authority (AFM). Many financial firms require their investment specialists to be registered with DSI.

  • What is the added value of registration and participation in DSI for my company?

    With your DSI certification, you show clients, prospects and the supervisory body that your organisation places a high value on the integrity and expertise of your employees. Moreover, doing so contributes to the legal requirement to guarantee fair and honest operations. It also shows that your fully-certified employees meet the required European ESMA Guidelines, which are enforced by the AF

  • How does DSI differentiate itself from other similar organisations?

    DSI stands for impartial, serious self-regulation. DSI’s approach is characterised by a system that promotes and certifies the integrity and expertise of financial professionals on one hand, and that also intervenes when necessary on the other.

    Every DSI-certified professional has been exhaustively screened, has the relevant education and work experience, has completed the training necessary to deal with integrity-related dilemmas, and is periodically reviewed on their integrity and expertise. Moreover, DSI-certified professionals commit to abide by the Code of Conduct. And when they violate the Code of Conduct, they can be held accountable by ethics enforcement agencies. This ‘closed system’ enables consumers, employers and supervisory bodies to trust that the certified professionals meet the strictest standards placed by the sector.

  • How does DSI monitor fair and honest operations?

    DSI’s procedures are recorded in the Administrative Organisation and Internal Management Measures document. An accountant monitors DSI’s compliance with these procedures and provides a report of his or her findings to both the board and the AFM, as per the terms of the covenant between DSI and AFM.

  • We have merged with another organisation, or we have split into two organisations. How can I inform DSI of that fact?

    When a firm merges or splits, a copy of the notary deed must be sent to DSI.  Your DSI-certified employees can then be registered under the name of the new organisation, as long as it is also affiliated with DSI.

  • My employees do not have an employment contract with my organisation. Are they still eligible for certification?

    The employees may request certification as a self-employed professional, temporary worker or contractor, franchisee, or employee of an institution that is affiliated with a DSI participant’s AFM license.

  • Which criteria must my employees meet to be eligible for certification?

    This page provides an overview of the general criteria for certification, such as the educational and experience requirements, etc. Our certifications page lists the requirements for each register in greater detail.

    This page features our General Regulations and appendix to the General Regulations explaining the minimum requirements and the DSI-accredited examinations.

  • As an employee’s current employer, why must I sign for 12 months of fulltime work experience if they only recently joined my organisation?

    DSI expects employers to pay close attention to their employees’ work history when hiring new employees. To that end, DSI asks you as an employer to state whether the employee meets the 12-month requirement in writing as part of the Employer’s Statement.

Certification - General

  • How does DSI monitor fair and honest operations?

    DSI’s procedures are recorded in the Administrative Organisation and Internal Management Measures document. An accountant monitors DSI’s compliance with these procedures and provides a report of his or her findings to both the board and the AFM, as per the terms of the covenant between DSI and AFM.

  • Can I be listed in more than one register?

    You can be included in more than one register if you meet certain job profile and admission requirements. An overview of the various DSI registers and their conditions can be found here.

  • I am not an employee. Can I still request certification?

    Absolutely. You can request certification as a self-employed professional, temporary worker or contractor, franchisee, or employee of an institution that is affiliated with a DSI participant’s AFM license.

  • If I terminate my certification/passive registration, how long will my diplomas remain valid?

    Your diplomas will remain valid for as long as you meet the current requirements for the register in which you were certified. You can also maintain your professional expertise, even if you are no longer DSI-certified, for example by participating in the periodic tests for your certification. Check the DSI website regularly for new information. If you missed the periodic test, you can always take it again later, because the tests are always updated together with the relevant examinations.

  • How should I prepare for my examinations?

    DSI only accredits examinations. You are entirely free to choose the best way to prepare for the exams. Ask your employer and/or educational institution which training options are available to you.

  • Who is eligible to serve as a supervisor?

    The European Securities & Markets Authority (ESMA), the organisation that drafted the ESMA Guidelines, determines who is eligible to serve as a supervisor. Only those employees who possess suitable qualifications and experience, as stipulated in the ESMA Guidelines, may act as supervisors of Candidate Certified Professionals (professionals who do not yet meet all of the Guideline criteria) within an organisation. The employee may not work under supervision for longer than 4 years. For more information, please refer to the ESMA Guidelines and the AFM.

  • How is the work experience of a full-time/part-time employee calculated?

    The Financial Markets Authority requires Certified Professionals to have the equivalent of 12 months of relevant fulltime work experience.

    Based on this criteria, DSI has drawn up the following requirement for DSI certification:
    During a 12-month period (fulltime equivalent) over the past five years, the Certified professional has spent a substantial portion of his/her time on register-related activities, whether in the current position or in previous positions.

    That means the required work experience for a part-time position must be proportional to 12 months of fulltime employment.

  • Why does my current employer need to sign for 12 months of fulltime work experience if I acquired it at another employer?

    DSI expects employers to pay close attention to their employees’ work history when hiring new employees. To that end, DSI asks employers to state whether the employee meets the 12-month requirement in writing as part of the Employer’s Statement.

  • Which different certification categories are there?

    DSI differentiates between three general categories of certifications that professionals can obtain: Retail, Institutional and Specialist.

    • DSI Retail: professionals listed in one of the retail registers have contact with non-professional investment clients. They offer advice or information to private clients regarding an investment product, and work at a financial institution or asset management firm.
    • DSI Institutional: professionals listed in one of the institutional registers have contact with professional investment clients. They offer advice or information to institutional clients, such as pension funds, regarding an investment product, and work at a financial institution or asset management firm.
    • DSI Specialist: professionals who wish to prove that they are up to date about the latest developments and requirements in the field of professional knowledge and expertise may choose to be listed in one of the specialist registers. These specialist professionals include investment analysts, compliance professionals and security brokers.

MijnDSI Screening - Certificate of Conduct (VOG)

  • The link to the Certificate of Conduct doesn’t work in MijnDSI. What should I do?

    If the link to the Certificate of Conduct in MijnDSI does not work, then the Ministry of Justice website is probably undergoing maintenance at the moment. If you receive this error message, please wait a bit and try again later.

    If you receive the maintenance error message, you could try deleting your cache / browser history. If that does not work, try using the following work-around. Please note: the work-around takes longer to process than requesting the Certificate of Conduct via the link in MijnDSI.

    Work-around:
    If you have enough time to wait, you can request a Certificate of Conduct yourself using this link. The Certificate of Conduct will be sent to the address you provide. When you receive the Certificate of Conduct, please upload it in MijnDSI as quickly as possible.

    Having problems uploading your Certificate of Conduct? The new MijnDSI requires sharp images to correctly verify the authenticity of documents. If you cannot upload your document, try taking a sharper photo of the image (max. file size 5 MB) and upload it again.

    If you still cannot upload your Certificate of Conduct, then please send it as an e-mail attachment to screening@dsi.nl, with reference to your request number. Team Screening will then manually link the Certificate of Conduct to your request and continue processing the request.

  • I can’t upload my Certificate of Conduct in MijnDSI. What should I do?

    Having problems uploading your Certificate of Conduct? The new MijnDSI requires sharp colour images to correctly verify the authenticity of documents. If you cannot upload your document, try taking a sharper colour photo of the image and upload it again. Please note: the maximum file size is 5 MB.

    If you still cannot upload your Certificate of Conduct, then please send it as an e-mail attachment to screening@dsi.nl, with reference to your request number. Team Screening will then manually link the Certificate of Conduct to your request and continue processing the request.

MijnDSI Screening - Employer's Statement

  • I have sent my (former) employer an e-mail asking them to sign the Employer’s Statement, but my contact person has not received an e-mail. What should I do?

    Please use the following work-around: you can also download the Employer’s Statement from MijnDSI. Download the statement and send it to your (former) employer via e-mail. We recommend that you secure or encrypt the file before sending it via e-mail.

    There are several methods for securing a file. To secure a Word document:

    • Click on ‘File’.
    • Select ‘Info’, then ‘Protect document’.
    • This will show a drop-down menu.
    • In the drop-down menu, select ‘Encrypt with password’.
    • Choose a password (and remember it or write it down), then click on ‘Ok’

    Your document is now secured with a password. You can send your (former) employer a notification e-mail with the password, and then send the Employer’s Statement in a separate e-mail.

    Once you have received the signed and completed Employer’s Statement from your (former) employer, you can send the file to screening@dsi.nl with reference to your request number. Team Screening will then manually link the Employer’s Statement to your request and continue processing the request.

  • I’ve entered all of my information and provided all of my documents, but the request still shows ‘incomplete’ in MijnDSI. What should I do?

    We are aware of this problem, and are hard at work on a solution. Once we have solved the problem with uploading, we will post a notification on this page.

    Until then, please use the following work-around:

    • Have you entered all of the requested information?
    • Has DSI received the Employer’s Statement(s)?
    • Have your diplomas and/or DUO transcript been uploaded?
    • Have you uploaded the Certificate of Conduct?

    And is the status still ‘Request incomplete’? If so, please call Team Screening at tel.: 020 620 12 74 or send an e-mail to screening@dsi.nl. We may be able to complete the request manually or let you know which information is still missing.

MijnDSI Screening - Request & uploads

  • How long does a screening usually take?

    At the moment, it may take a bit longer than usual to process your screening application due to the increased number of screening applications. As a result, there is a waiting list for processing screening applications.

    A screening procedure takes time to complete due to the many verifications that DSI must conduct. Once DSI has processed your screening application, we can issue the screening report within an average of 10 working days.

    DSI is working hard to speed up the processing of applications, and we appreciate your patience in this matter.

  • How can I upload my DUO transcript?

    To speed up the verification process for your highest completed degree, we ask that you request a free transcript from the DUO register. DSI will verify the document using digital authentication characteristics. To request a transcript, go to mijndiplomas.nl and log in using your DigiD (with text message authentication). You can then download the transcript, save it and upload the file with your request.

  • How can I share five years of my work history?

    Follow the instructions below to share your work experience over the past five years:

    Make sure that you cover the entire period of the past five years. You can do that in the following ways:

    • Signed employer’s statements must be provided for any work period longer than 4 months. Your (former) employer can sign these statements digitally when you send your (former) employer an e-mail from your MijnDSI account. If you do not have an e-mail address, then the process is more complicated, but you can still generate an employer’s statement. You can then print out the statement and send it to your (former) employer for signature. When you receive the signed employer’s statement in return, you can scan it or take a photo and add the file to the relevant employment period.
    • Your (former) employer or HR officer are authorised to sign your employer’s statement for DSI. If you have any questions about signature authorisation, please ask your (former) employer;
    • For periods without a work history, please select the correct category in the drop-down menu. We ask that you do not use the category ‘multiple periods’.
  • I am being asked to pay for my screening request in MijnDSI, but I’m not supposed to pay for it myself. What should I do?

    The most likely cause of the problem is that you did not select your employer in the drop-down menu. In that case, ask your employer to send a screening invitation. This will ensure that you go through the correct screening process, and that your employer pays for the screening.

  • When I upload my proof of identification in MijnDSI, it won’t let me continue. What should I do?

    The image is probably out of focus, or the file type is not recognized. Try uploading a sharper image with minimum file size 5 MB of your proof of identification. This should solve the problem.

    If you still cannot upload the file, please contact our helpdesk at info@mijndsi.nl or call 020 620 12 74.

  • When I upload a Certificate of Conduct (VOG) in MijnDSI, it won’t let me continue. What should I do?

    The image is probably out of focus, or the file type is not recognised. Try uploading a sharper image (max. file size 5 MB) to your request. This should solve the problem.

    If you still cannot upload the file, please contact our Screening Officers via screening@mijndsi.nl or call 020 620 12 74.

  • I can’t see my request in MijnDSI. What should I do?

    Double-click on the line with the pencil icon. This should display your request.

    Still can’t see your request?

    If it is for a certification request, please contact our Certification Officers via certificering@dsi.nl or call 020 620 12 74.

  • When I look at my MijnDSI account, I can’t see any information. Something’s wrong. What should I do?

    At the bottom of the screen, you will see the name of your employer. Double-click on this link to view your request. Don’t see this link?

    MijnDSI is optimised for the Firefox and Chrome browsers, and does not work as well in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. If you use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge, then try logging in via Chrome. This may correct the problems with your account. MijnDSI is optimised for use on a desktop or laptop, and does not work as well on a tablet, iPad or smartphone. Please try logging in on a desktop or laptop. This may correct the problems with your account.

    Still can’t see your account details?

    If it is for a screening request, please contact our Screening Officers via screening@dsi.nl or call 020 620 12 74.

    If it is for a certification request, please contact our Certification Officers via certificering@dsi.nl or call 020 620 12 74.

MijnDSI Tips & Tricks

  • Use the invitation link sent by your (future) employer

    We have noticed that some professionals do not use the link sent by their (future) employer when submitting a screening request. We ask that you use this link. If you have not received a link via e-mail, we ask that you request another link from your (future) employer. This will allow your (future) employer to monitor the status of your screening application. That makes the process more convenient and efficient for everyone.

  • Load only 1 diploma per file

    DSI has noticed that applicants occasionally try to upload more than one diploma per document file. This makes the verification process more difficult, so please only upload one diploma document per file.

    Also please note that DSI will only list 3 additional diplomas on your screening report, so you only need to upload a maximum of 3 separate diploma documents.

  • In the drop-down menu for ‘Work history’, please do not select ‘Multiple periods'

    The drop-down menu for ‘Work history’ in your MijnDSI platform shows the option ‘Multiple periods’. We ask that you do not choose this option in the drop-down menu. Experience has shown that the term ‘multiple periods’ in your screening report can cause confusion. DSI is working on removing this option from the system, but until then we ask that you do not select this option in the menu.

  • When you upload your Certificate of Conduct, make sure to upload it in colour

    Remember to upload your Certificate of Conduct in colour. DSI must receive the Certificate of Conduct in colour in order to verify the authentication characteristics. If the Certificate of Conduct is not in colour, then DSI will reject your screening application. This will delay the processing of your screening request and the issue of your screening report.

  • Uploading files? Make sure they are in .jpeg format and not larger than 5Mb

    You will have to upload documents as part of the screening application. Please make sure that the files are not larger than 5 Mb. The platform will not accept uploaded files that are larger than 5 Mb.

    The platform can always read .jpeg files, but it may have difficulty recognising other file formats, for example when uploading your proof of identification.

  • Log in to MijnDSI using a desktop computer or laptop

    MijnDSI works well on a desktop and laptop, but has not yet been optimised for other devices, such as smartphones, iPhones, tablets or iPads.

    So if you log into MijnDSI using one of these devices, it will not work properly. We recommend that you use a desktop computer or laptop.
