A one-year grace period is given if you miss your December 31 deadline. After that date, your CPP, PCI, and PSP designations are considered “lapsed.” When your certification is lapsed, you are technically not certified and must stop using the designation until you have completed your recertification requirement.
During your “lapsed” year, you will need to submit additional CPEs and pay a late fee to recertify your designation.
- Between January 1 and June 30 of your lapsed year, a total of 64 credits and a $110 fee is required to reinstate your ASIS designation (four additional credits and a $40 late fee)
- Between July 1 and December 31 of your lapsed year, a total of 68 credits and a $110 fee is required to reinstate your ASIS designation (eight additional credits and a $40 late fee)
Starting January 2019, the lapsed period will be shortened to three months. Those who are due to recertify by Dec. 31, 2018 will only have until March 31, 2019 to complete the recertification requirements or risk losing your certification.
If you fail to submit a recertification application prior to December 31 of your lapsed year, your certification will expire. To be certified again, you will need to apply for, and pass, the applicable certification examination.
