NEBB Firm Recertification Process and Procedures:

Verification of ownership and current calibration of all NEBB-required instruments is mandatory every two years.  If your firm’s current certificate and stamp expiration date reads March 31, 2021, your firm is due to recertify. Online recertification opens August 1, 2020 


If your firm is due to recertify, the firm’s online submission is required to be approved by the chapter and forwarded to NEBB by December 31 by following the instructions below. 

  1. Have all necessary instruments (including newly purchased ones) properly calibrated for each discipline that your firm holds NEBB Certification prior to completing the online recertification.
    1. For any submission of an instrument not currently not on the approved drop-down list, firms must submit adequate manufacturer’s documentation indicating compliance with parameters set-forth in the most current edition of the Procedural Standard for that discipline.
    2. Upload the complete current calibration, all sheets, for each instrument for review and approval. 
  2. You will need to supply proof of ownership of the current edition of the Procedural Standard for all disciplines that your firm is recertifying.  Please upload a photocopy of the cover or a copy of the purchase invoice.
  3. The Chapter has the right to request a picture of any instrument to be uploaded behind the calibration sheet to help with the review.  A chapter may request pictures of device that do not require calibration.
  4. Please remember that any documentation submitted incorrectly or found incomplete will result in further delays and late fees.
  5. If the firm submission is pulled for NEBB audit, pictures and calibration sheets must be provided to the NEBB upon request for review.


Firm Instrument Calibration Dates Guidelines:

Calibration for the instruments must be valid for 90 days beyond the day the firm submits to the chapter.


Recertification Guidelines and Deadlines:

Chapter approved firm recertification submissions are due to NEBB by December 31 (OP 2.4.1). Failure to submit the chapter approved firm recertification to NEBB by December 31 will result in delays in the turnaround process and the NEBB Certified Firm may not receive the new stamp(s) and certificate(s) before their current ones expire on March 31.
