If the certified member fails to meet certification requirements within the three (3) year time frame, EC-Council will suspend his/her certification.
Suspended members will not be allowed to use the certification logos and related EC-Council membership benefits in Aspen.
Suspended members must remediate their suspension within a maximum period of 12 months from the date of the expiry of the three (3) year time frame. Failing to do so will result in the member’s certification and status being revoked and the member will need to take and pass the certification exam again to be re-certified.
Suspended members that subsequently meet the 120 ECE credit requirements within the specified 12 month deadline from the date of the expiry of the three (3) year time frame will be reinstated as a member in good standing and can enjoy the use of their certification logo and related EC-Council benefits. However, the reinstated member will have only a reduced period to achieve another 120 ECE credits for their next recertification window. “Reduced period” refers to a time frame of 3 years minus the suspension period.
