Category 1

  • Company secretary's licence has expired; and
  • Comply with the 60 CPE points requirement.

Total CPE points to be complied with for the next renewal of licence

LS must accumulate 80 CPE points during the validity period of three (3) years

= 60 CPE + remaining 20 CPE

= 80 CPE points
