On the 15th and 22nd March 2023, the GSSA held the Introduction to SAMCODES and JSE Listing Rules. It was initially proposed as an in-contact event to be held at the Mandela Mining Precinct. However, the number of registrations received for the contact event did not make this a viable proposition and the event was eventually held online only with 28 virtual delegates. Delegates cane from all over South Africa and even from Botswana and Namibia.
The event covered the basics of the various codes (SAMREC, SAMVAL, SAMOG and the SAMESG Guideline) as well as an introduction to the JSE listing rules. It also defined the requirements for a Competent Person and reviewed the fundamentals of compiling a Competent Persons Report as well as the common mistakes identified by the JSE Readers Panel. It serves as a basis on which to build the Advanced Course to be held later in the year.
