Industry standards require certificate authorities (CAs), such as DigiCert, to follow several important steps when validating an organization for an EV SSL/TLS certificate. As part of the Extended Validation process, we must verify:
DigiCert validates customers in every industry (business, e-commerce, education, financial, government), in more than 180 countries around the world.
Industry standard EV SSL Certificate guidelines require DigiCert to issue certificates to organizations registered with an official registration agency in their country of jurisdiction. All corporations, associations, partnerships, government agencies, educational institutions, and sole proprietors can apply for EV validation with a valid business license, charter or equivalent document verifiable through a registration agency or directly through the registration agency's Website.
Currently, we can validate organizations in the countries listed below for Extended Validation certificates. We are constantly improving our validation methods, so if your country does not appear in this list, please contact Support at +1.801.701.9600 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to give you the benefits of Extended Validation while strictly following industry guidelines.
