MAINTAINING YOUR CERTIFICATION
FOR CERTIFIED BUSINESSES
Dear Certified Business,
Now that your company is deemed a certified business with SDO, it is not a permanent designation and you have a continuing duty to notify SDO of a change in any information that is relevant to the firm’s certification eligibility and to ensure that the information and documentation relied upon by SDO to certify or to maintain the certification of the business enterprise is accurate, complete and not misleading. You are required to notify SDO in writing of any change of such information or documentation within thirty calendar days. By way of example and not limitation, any change in ownership, control, investment, ongoing or independence may be considered material. Failure to abide by the continuing duty requirements shall constitute grounds for the business entity’s decertification.
The links provided will guide you with steps to take and to ensure that your business remains certifiable.
