Renew

You will be asked whether you want to change your Account Password during the renewal process. Please be aware that this is not the same as the Certificate Password you use with your digital certificate (although you may have chosen the same code for both Account Password and Certificate Password).  Unless you are confident that you will remember a new Account Password, we suggest that you do not change it. As a reminder, changing the Account Password will not change the Certificate Password you use with your certificate.

ECA (DOD), IGC and TrustID certificates cannot be renewed after they expire. If your certificate has expired, you will need to apply for a new certificate. 

 

Once we receive your renewal request, our Registration team will review and determine if new forms are required. If no additional documents are needed your request will be approved and you will receive an email notification with instructions to retrieve the renewed certificate.

If new forms or other supporting documentation is needed to approve the request you will be notified by email. Your renewal request will be processed once the documentation is provided. to you. 

If you are having trouble logging in to the Certificate Management Center (CMC), make sure that your browser is not blocking pop-ups for this site. If you are unable to login because you have forgotten your Account Password, you have the option to reset your password via the CMC. This option is available by clicking the link I forgot my account password in the CMC login page. Once you have reset your account password you should be able to access the CMC.

If you have received a request to submit new notarized forms it is because your name, your company name, the company headquarters address, or your email address has changed and we need your application forms to match your certificate application.  Please submit the forms as soon as possible as not to delay your certificate renewal. 

In order to renew your certificate before it expires, if you have a software certificate you must be on the computer where your certificate is currently stored.  If your certificate is stored in a Smart Card or USB Token you must have the device attached to the computer that has the Smart Card or USB Token software .  When you login to the Certificate Management Center, a window will appear with your name in it. You must highlight your name and click "OK". If your name is not in the box, it means that your certificate is not on the computer you are using. Other suggestions:

 

  • If your certificate is on another computer, please renew it from that computer. 
  • If your certificate is no longer on any computer, you will need to replace your certificate first and then renew it.
