Challenges Obtaining and Maintaining CRS Certification
Obtaining CRS certification can require significant documentation, and delays can occur from not providing or understanding what types of documentation to submit. The following are all preventable issues that can cause delays:
- Filling out forms incorrectly
- Certification agency requiring product documentation that is difficult to produce
- Changes in the CRS scheme can affect existing products
- Certificate expirations cause unexpected lapse in coverage
