Important information for anyone, who has not collected their exam certificates.
Due to the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we will shortly begin to start shredding unclaimed exam certificates.
The JCQ regulations state that “Centres may destroy any unclaimed certificates by a secure method after holding them for a period of 12 months from the date of issue”.
A record of certificates that have been destroyed will be retained for four years from the date of destruction.
Candidates should be advised that some awarding bodies do not offer a replacement certificate service. In such circumstances the awarding body will issue a Certifying Statement of Results.
All uncollected certificates dated up to SUMMER 2013 will be shredded during October 2018, so if you haven’t collected yours please do so ASAP.
