If you have submitted your certification application and want to check the status, please review the email sent to you from email@example.com. WPEO has also created a certification timeline that highlights the application process.
This timeline provides links to resources that will better help you submit a completed application.
WPEO-NY receives and processes over 150 files each month. Each application is handled in the order in which it is received. If supporting documents are missing, the application cannot be submitted for processing. Our staff will send a “Missing Documents” notice via WBENCLink at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also work with you to obtain the missing documents. Be sure to reference the resources below to ensure that your application is complete before submitting it.
Once you have received a notice from WBENCLink that your file is complete, the review process can take up to 90 days. This covers the time needed for a committee review and if needed a site visit. Please note that a site visit is required for all first time certification applicants and every three years thereafter.
Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are completed. Applicants who are submitting recertification applications should send the requisite supporting documentation at least 90 days prior to the expiration date to avoid a lapse in certification.
