Documents required for EV / OV SSL Certificates

To qualify for an Extended Validation / Domain Validation SSL Certificate, domain registration details must reflect the full organization name as included on the certificate request. In other words, your organization name must be listed in the certificate request exactly as is found in your Who Is Record.

Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate means your company or organization will need to undergo extensive business vetting before this certificate is issued which may include Phone Call, Verification of Documents, Registration certificate, Tax Certificates etc.  It typically takes 1-5 days to validate and issue this certificate. Once installed, it unlocks the standard SSL visual indicators (https and a green padlock icon) as well as the green address bar directly in the URL section of the browser.

Official government agency records must include the organization’s registration number or the organization’s date of registration/ incorporation; and the organization’s or registered agent’s address. This should be the same address that is listed in the certificate request.

A non-government data source (such as Dun & Bradstreet) must include the organization’s place of business address as listed in the order. You can search by company name to see your address on file for free.

 If the organization has been registered for less than 3 years and has no Dun & Bradstreet record, the CA (e.g. Symantec/GeoTrust/Thawte) will verify that the organization has an active demand deposit account (such as a checking account) with a regulated financial firm.  Your details must be available on country specific Yellow Pages.

 Any other details as may be deemed fit by the Certificate Authority to validate your organization.

Above requirements are for information purpose only and Certificate Authority may amend the requirements from time to time on which we have No Control. Better to check for updated acquirement from respective Certificate Authority before purchasing a Cert from us.
