30. If the recertification audit was started prior to certificate expiration and the certification decision occurs within 6 months of the expiration date (i.e., IAF ID 3 – Restoration), can the current certification period be extended beyond the original three-year certification cycle (i.e. no expiration status in OASIS)?
No, the current certification period must not be extended beyond the current three-year certification cycle. If the current certificate expires, the certificate status in OASIS will be listed as “Expired” until the restoration process is completed, or additional time is used to re-instate the certification per the IAQG OPMT COVID-19 Notification.
