The user needs to sign up for the platform to access the CEPRAL service of COETIC.

The registered user can create an application for a specific profile. To prepare an application, the user is required to provide documentary evidence of his/her identity (first application only) and the compulsory and optional documents corresponding to the profile.

After finishing the preparation, the application needs to be processed. The user does not have to complete the preparation in one session because the system will keep the application in the initial state until it is finished. Once the user finishes the application, no more documentary evidence can be added.

For the application to be processed, it will be handed over to the CEPRAL committee of COETIC for assessment. The application can be processed only after the provided documentation has been sent to COETIC and the payment for the assessment cost has been made. Until 30 September 2018, the assessment cost is €49.61* including taxes. Starting from 1 October 2018, the assessment cost is €52.03** including taxes for members of the association and students of universities with an agreement on this matter, and €71.39 including taxes for other applicants.

A decision about the assessment will be made within 7 to 30 calendar days following the receipt of the documentation by post and after comparing the received documentation with the uploaded documentation and verifying that the payment has been made. The decision will be communicated to the applicant by e-mail. From then on, the applicant will be able to appeal against the assessment result within 10 days, if it deemed appropriate.

If the assessment is positive, the user will be able to request the signing, issue and deposit of the corresponding certificate. For this purpose, the user needs to set the issue and deposit options and make the payment. Until 30 September 2018, the payment amounts to €12.10* including taxes for members of the association and students from universities with an agreement on this matter, and €21.78* including taxes for other applicants. Starting from 1 October 2018, the amount of €12.10** including taxes is maintained for members of the association and students from universities with an agreement on this matter, and the amount is €24.20 including taxes for other applicants.

The certificate will be issued to the applicant and deposited on the platform within 7 calendar days following the receipt of the payment. It can be verified online by anyone who has the associated SVC (Secure Verification Code).

Please sign up for the platform to get further information and clarification.
