Chartered Director (SA)

 

Every company should be headed by a board that is the focal point of governance. The board should provide effective and ethical leadership to direct and safeguard relationships between management, the board, shareholders and other stakeholders. To do this, directors require specialist skills, knowledge, experience and integrity – all while meeting the challenges of today’s complex business environment.

 

 

The way in which the IoDSA defines a competent director is captured in the IoDSA Director Competency Framework TM

 

An overview of all the processes and requirements of the CD(SA)® can be found in the CD(SA)® Handbook 2016.

 

Purpose of the CD(SA) designation

 

The CD(SA)® designation is designed to enhance directorship as a profession and further promote sound corporate governance in South Africa. 

 

Although the Companies Act, 2008, provides for ineligibility and disqualification of directors, there are no professional or occupational qualification criteria.  CD(SA)® will assess and credit the mastery of directors while enhancing the skills of directors in South Africa.

 

The CD(SA) designation will:

  • Enable directors to demonstrate their mastery of knowledge, skills and experience
  • Enable directors to evidence their commitment to on-going professional learning
  • Enable directors to demonstrate their integrity and commitment to moral and legal duties;
  • Create a pathway for aspirant directors to enhance their careers;
  • Lend credibility to the profession by upholding standards for directorship and sound corporate governance;  and,
  • Result in better directors, better boards and better business in the interest of South Africa.
