It is a candidate's responsibility to ensure that they know the correct date, time and location of all examinations booked. Candidates should contact the FPI examination body department immediately if a confirmation is not received within 24 hours of scheduling the exam.

If a candidate wants to make changes to the date, time or venue, they must contact FPI examination body department and make the necessary arrangements to postpone or cancel. This can be done via the call centre on 011 470 6100 or by e-mailing re@fpi.co.za.

Rescheduling, i.e. postponement, must be done no less than 10 working days prior to the examination date. The rescheduled date will be impacted by the availability of an examination at the venue and session required.

The standard FSB policy for the cancellation and postponement of regulatory examinations is as follows:

For both paper-based and online examinations the following apply:
A postponement received prior to 10 working days before the date of an exam will not be subject to a penalty.
A postponement received within 10 working days of the date of an exam will result in a penalty of 100% of the examination fee.
A cancellation received by a candidate or corporate client within 10 working days of the date of an exam will result in a penalty of 100% of the examination fee. 
The non-arrival by a candidate to an exam will result in a penalty of 100% of the exam fee.
A cancellation effected by a candidate or corporate client outside the cancellation period (i.e. more than 10 days before an exam) will result in a penalty of 20% of the examination fee.
Candidates who do not show up for an examination cannot claim a refund of the fee paid.

There is only one exception to the above conditions:

A candidate, who, as a result of illness or any other unforeseen circumstances, is prevented from writing a regulatory examination on the date arranged, is required to contact the FPI examination body department within 10 working days, furnishing reasons for the absenteeism.

A written application must be made, supported by medical or other evidence (which must confirm that the candidate was unable to attend the regulatory examinations on the relevant date due to illness/accident). In these circumstances a candidate will be allowed to reschedule at no cost. Applications will not be considered without evidence and the candidate will forfeit the fee.
