          Certification is a review process designed to ensure that a small business is actually owned, controlled, and operated by the applicants.

          Most certifications are granted for Minority or Women owned businesses.

          Certification agencies implement the processes for government and private sector entities and

          ensure that only firms that meet the eligibility criteria of the individual programs are properly certified.


          A minority-owned business is a for-profit enterprise, physically located in the United States which is owned, operated and controlled

          by minority group members. "Minority group members" are United States citizens who are Asian, Black, Hispanic and Native American.


          To become certified as a woman owned business, businesses must show:

          • All prospective members must provide clear and documented evidence that at least 51% or more is women-owned, managed, and controlled.
          • The business must be open for at least six months.
          • The business owner must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident alien.


          Hope this helps
