There are three roles within the certificate request process:

  • The certificate requester completes the certificate request on behalf of the organisation.
  • The certificate approver signs the request on behalf of the organisation with the organisation's own domains
  • The agreement signer signs the GTCs as part of the certificate acquisition process.

The three roles can also be performed by a single person. When acquiring Gold certificates via web shop, you can use the following customer agreement in which all roles are covered by a single authorisation. Please indicate the existence of this authorisation upon placing each web shop order or enclose a copy.

Would you like to add or cancel authorisations for access responsibles within a Managed PKI? If so, please use our change form and authorisation form on the Managed PKI page (topic “Contract modification and termination”):

  • Please ensure for all authorisations that the organisation's authorised representatives as per the commercial register entry, organisation entry, whois database etc. provide their signature.
  • If the Commercial Register requires a "collective signature" of two persons, the authorization should also be signed by two persons in accordance with the entry in the Register.
