IQAS – Order duplicate certificates

You can order additional copies of your assessment certificate.

Overview

IQAS only issues duplicate certificates for the same type of assessment that was previously completed.

A duplicate certificate is an exact copy of the original assessment. IQAS does not update any information on the duplicate certificate except the applicant’s name when necessary. If you need to add a credential to your duplicate certificate, you must apply for a new assessment.

ECA assessments are valid for 5 years and you cannot request a duplicate certificate after 5 years from the date your original assessment was issued. If you need an ECA after 5 years, you need to apply for a new assessment.

Basic, Specialized and Educational assessments are valid for 10 years and you cannot request a duplicate certificate after 10 years from the date your original assessment was issued. If you need a Basic, Specialized or Educational assessment after 10 years, you need to apply for a new assessment.

Cost

The cost for each duplicate certificate is $30.

The courier fee for each mailing address is $5.

All IQAS fees are non-refundable.
