Firstly we search the availability of the NPC Name you want.
(2) Name Reservation
If your preferred NPC Name seems to be available, we reserve that NPC Name with CIPC. If your NPC Name is already used, we will assist you to register an alternative NPC Name suitable for your industry.
Cost of registering the NPC is R 2 490. After we have successfully reserved your NPC Name and received your required documentation, we will register your New NPC at CIPC in the fastest time-frame possible.
After CIPC has registered your NPC, the NPC Certification documents will be made available via email.
