We would like to make you aware of a change in the standard that brings more flexibility when you recertify your certificate.

Your new certificate will now be valid from the expiration date at your current certificate.

In other words, you will not lose duration time at your current certificate if you recertify well in advance of the expiration date of your certificate.
You can recertify as early as 6 months before your certificate expires.
