RENEWAL OR AUTO-RENEWAL PROCESS
COMPLIANCE & VERIFICATION
SHRM has a responsibility to maintain and protect the integrity of the SHRM Recertification Provider Program. This includes ensuring that programs offered by SHRM Recertification Providers align. To this end, SHRM reserves the right to:
DENIAL & TERMINATION
SHRM’s goal is to help rectify any application issues. In the event an existing SHRM Recertification Provider is found to be in violation of program standards or procedures, the Provider will be notified by SHRM staff of the violation and given 30 days to make corrections. Failure to comply by the end of the 30-day period may result in suspension or termination of SHRM Recertification Provider status.
The U.S. Treasury Department Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is responsible for the enforcement of U.S. economic sanctions. These sanctions make it illegal for SHRM or anyone on SHRM’s behalf, such as SHRM Recertification Providers, to offer SHRM courses or other SHRM materials that are approved for SHRM professional development credits (PDCs) to any individual who is prohibited from receiving them. For this reason, if any individual registers for a course and desires to obtain SHRM PDCs for his/her attendance, and the individual is located in or ordinarily a resident of one of the following countries, the SHRM Recertification Provider must screen the individual against the OFAC Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List prior to conducting the course(s). Countries include: Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Burma, Burundi, Central African Republic, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Hong Kong, Iran, Iraq, Kosovo, Lebanon, Libya, Macedonia, Mali, Montenegro, Nicaragua, North Korea, Russia, Serbia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine (including the Crimea region), Venezuela, Yemen and Zimbabwe. In the event an individual is listed on the SDN List, the SHRM Recertification Provider agrees that it will not permit such individual to receive PDCs or any certificate stating that the individual is eligible to claim SHRM PDCs for participation in the course(s). SHRM Recertification Providers agree to promptly comply with any changes or additions to the above-listed countries or requirements upon notification by SHRM.
