Certificates will also expire under the following circumstances:

  • Any data associated with a certificate changes, leading to re-verification and the issuance of a new certificate. In such cases, the certificate date of issue is updated to reflect the issuance date of the new certificate, while the dates of other certificates remain unchanged.

If a user has already been approved and their certificate expires, their application status will continue to display as "APPROVED."


What to do when you encounter an expired certificate:

This depends on the requirements and internal procedures of your business. 

  • If you don’t need to update the information about the user and the user has already been on-boarded by you, you can simply ignore this notification.
  • If you want to receive a new document and a new certificate you can click the “START REVIEW” button and reject the document related to the expired certificate (e.g. Passport if Passport Authentication certificate has expired, or Utility Bill document if Proof of Address certificate has expired):
    • The user will be prompted to submit a new document.
    • Upon submission of a new document, the user will be forced to verify their new document first.
    • Due to the new verification, the user’s status will turn to “INCOMPLETE”.
    • Once the document is Verified you will see the new document along with the new certificate in the dashboard, and the status of the application will show as “WAITING FOR REVIEW”.
    • You will receive a notification when the user's information is updated.
