Your business’s certification is valid for three years from the approval date. You have 120 days before your certification expiration date to recertify your business. Your certification expiration date is displayed on your VetCert dashboard with your current Certifications and Designations. You can also see your certification expiration date in the Veteran Small Business Search on the VetCert website.
You will be sent an email notification that you can recertify 120 days before your certification expiration date. The notification will be sent to the email associated with your account. You will continue to receive email reminders every 30 days, and you will receive one last reminder if you are 7 days from your expiration date and have not applied for recertification.
If you no longer wish to be certified as a veteran-owned or service-disabled veteran-owned small business, you do not need to take any action and your certification will expire.
