SUBJECT: Special Notice – New Recertification Process Guidance
On April 30, 2018, the Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) replaced the CBE Business Online system and launched the DSLBD Enterprise System (DES). The DES is compatible with all commonly used browsers (including Chrome and Safari) and significantly decreased the number of steps to complete CBE certification and recertification applications with the Department. The DES allows businesses to make some updates to their business profile information on the DSLBD website without approval from DSLBD. Allowable updates include: changes to business and public contact email addresses, website address changes and business description changes.
The purpose of this notice is to provide the CBE community with guidance related to the new recertification procedures within the Department’s business certification division.
If you have any questions related to this notice please contact DSLBD’s Certification Division at [email protected].
