Welcome

The Institute of Commercial Forensic Practitioners is a self-regulatory body mandated by its members to Cohere, Co-ordinate and Regulate the commercial forensic profession in South Africa.

The ICFP has selected and contracted independent specialists to review industry-related  courses offered by tertiary institutions.  This process was first introduced during 2014, and individuals will receive recognition for prior learning for the following accredited courses:

  • Associate Membership
  • Full Membership
  • Honorary Membership

The ICFP is mandated to ensure that members of the ICFP develop and maintain the professional competence necessary to –

  • provide high quality service to clients, employers and other stakeholders; and
  • strengthen public trust in the commercial forensic profession.

Although it is the responsibility of the commercial forensic practitioner to maintain competence by undertaking relevant continuing professional development (CPD) activities, the ICFP has a responsibility to –

  • foster a commitment to lifelong learning (maintaining and developing professional competence) among its members;
  • facilitate access to CPD opportunities and resources for their members; and
  • adopt prescribed requirements relating to the development and implementation of appropriate measurement, monitoring, and compliance procedures to help their members develop and maintain the professional competence necessary to protect the public interest.

These obligations are in line with the stakeholder expectations in South Africa.
