The Awarding Bodies have agreed to implement a standard procedure for dealing with unclaimed certificates.
Centres may destroy any unclaimed certificates by a secure method (for example by shredding or incineration) after holding them for a period of 12 months from the date of issue. A record of all certificates destroyed by a centre should be kept for a further period of four years from the date of their destruction.
Any queries concerning the destruction or secure disposal of unclaimed certificates should be directed to the awarding body that issued the certificates.
