COVID-19 OUTBREAK- MEMBERSHIP APPLICATIONS
Due to current constraints on our audit resources and the changing global travel restrictions in response to the outbreak of COVID-19, priority is being given to maintaining the certification of our existing members. As a consequence, regrettably, membership application services will be severely impacted or rejected in cases where it is not feasible to process an application. This decision has not been taken lightly and we understand that this may cause inconvenience to our aspirant members.
Please be assured that we will continue to actively monitor matters relating to the COVID-19 outbreak and use our best endeavours to resume normal service as soon as possible.
