Additional Qualifying Criteria
Please answer the question(s) below so that we can determine whether or not your company, partnership or close corporation meets the qualifying criteria for cover under the SPIIS.
SACNASP Qualification
Directors of the company:

Please note that at this time, the SPIIS is only able to accommodate applications where all the directors qualify for SACNASP registration , and where they do not qualify for SACNASP registration, only if they are either completely inactive or involved in a capacity which falls within the description of administration, legal and accounting functions which are necessarily ancillary to the provision of natural science services.

If any ONE director does NOT qualify for SACNASP registration and renders services which fall outside the 4 allowed non-registered categories , namely: administration, legal, accounting or they are inactive — your Company does not qualify for cover under the SPIIS and you will need to CLICK ON THE RED BUTTON BELOW to download and complete a different proposal form and return it to us to obtain separate stand-alone quotes for your consideration.

Please note that unless you have at least ONE director that qualifies for SACNASP registration, you do not qualify for cover under the SPIIS as the cover is restricted to SACNASP registered scientists only. If none of your directors qualify for SACNASP registration and you would still like to obtain quotes for professional indemnity insurance, please CLICK ON THE RED BUTTON BELOW and you will be re-directed to a screen where you may download and complete a special form and return it to us so that we can obtain separate stand-alone quotes for your consideration.
