The Delaware Division of Corporations now has online validation and verification for certificates that have been generated by our office on business entities. You will need your entity file number and your authentication number from the certificate for validation.
You can only validate a certificate for 1 year of the date that it was issued.
Please note that all certificates issued by the Division since July 1, 2006 are printed in black ink on standard white paper inclusive of the Secretary of State’s seal and signature.
Please note that this validation process does not apply to UCC filings or searches that have been generated by the Delaware Division of Corporations and can only be utilized for certificates issued on Delaware business entities.
