RECERTIFICATIONS –

  • Certificates that expire on or before the 1-year anniversary of the R2v3 release date: Facilities will have the option to recertify to R2:2013 as long as the recertification audit is completed before the one year anniversary of the R2v3 release.
     
  • Certificates that expire after the 1-year anniversary of the R2v3 release date: Facilities will be required to transition to the new R2v3 Standard.
     
  • All R2:2013 certificates will expire no later than 3 years from the R2v3 release date.
