Do I have to pass the Business Validation every year?

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

You have to pass the Business Validation when you buy a new BV SSL Certificate.

If you buy your BV SSL Certificate for 1 year, then your certificate will be valid for 1 year, and you will have to pass the Business Validation again in 1 years when you request a new BV SSL Certificate. If you buy your BV SSL Certificate for 2 years, then your certificate will be valid for 2 years, and you will have to pass the Business Validation again in 2 years when you request a new BV SSL Certificate.

At the same time, the process of completing the Business Validation is easier the following years, so as the Certificate Authority has more information about your company in their system, based on your previous BV SSL Certificates requests.
