What is required from an Authentication Contact?

An Authentication Contact needs to approve that the person named as the User Contact is entitled to order certificates on behalf of the business unit or company. Therefore the Authentication Contact needs to hold an appropriate position within the management hierarchy of the enterprise for whom the certificate is intended, e.g. Head of IT (or other relevant department), Managing Director/Owner of the company etc.

He/she should:

1. Sign, stamp and date the Authorisation Form and return a scanned copy to us. 
2. Send us a scanned copy of a document which confirms the official registration/incorporation of the company for whom the certificate is intended.

The Authentication Contact not fulfilling these requirements is the most common reason for delays in the issue of your certificate.
