How to cancel your electronic certificate
Requesting the Cancellation or Revocation of your Certificate will allow you to cancel the validity of the certificate before its expiry date.
You can request a revocation at any time, and should certainly be requested if the holder believes that the certificate may have been copied, that a third party knows the PIN, if it has been lost, etc...
If necessary, you can request this revocation (cancellation) with the certificate's issuing body or with the corresponding Administration or Delegation.Once revoked (cancelled), you must request a new certificate, repeating all of the necessary steps to obtain it.
You can request a new certificate and request cancellation of the previous one with the same Administration or Delegation when you go to prove your identity.
In the case of certificates for individuals, the holders of the certificates can request the revocation.
With certificates for representatives, they can only be cancelled by a person with sufficient powers of representation, under the terms laid out in the Specific Policies and Practices of Certification.
The FNMT-RCM will be responsible for issuing and making lists of revoked certificates.
Given that the procedure can vary according to the certificate's issuing body, visit the website of the relevant authorised certifying body or contact their technical support service.All issuing bodies have help options and services available on their websites.
