Replacement/Name Change on Certificate


Use this process to:

  • Replace original certificate (must have been lost or destroyed)
  • Change the name on your certificate (not mandatory)
    (If you wait until you next apply for a certificate or renewal, there will be no fee for changing your name at that time)



Includes details on the documents needed and process to obtain certification.
