What documents do I need for Comodo OV?

Organization Validation certifies, in addition to domain name ownership, additional information about the organization or business that has requested the SSL. This information includes the name of the entity, the city, state and country in which it is headquartered. The issuing authority searches bank or local government sources and databases. In case the details are not confirmed, the payment of documents proving the identity of the applicant and the organization is required.

Of course, the first thing they will check is the electronic confirmation of the existence of your company, on the website of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

For this reason you will need to confirm that your company actually exists through the Chamber's search, stating the name or distinctive title which should be in English.

Caution! All documents to be sent are required by Comodo to be translated into English.

The  documents should be sent by the user himself to the following emails:

  1. Trustwave : 

Extended Validated SSLs are the ones that come with the strictest process of checks to confirm the identity of the organization. They differ from Organization certificates in terms of the certification process, as in EV SSL it is dictated by the Certification Authority Browser Forum and includes 6 + 1 levels, which require the submission of documents for:

1.The exclusive ownership of the domain name.

Because the Comodo company states that it also performs a whois check on the domain, in order to confirm that the applicant's name and address are the same as that of the domain owner. You will therefore need to request written confirmation in English of the owner of your domain, from the same registrar you have purchased it from.

2.The headquarters of the organization

There is a possibility that they will do a telephone confirmation, so if there is any of your site up in the air, your company's address and phone information will need to be valid.

3.Νatural and legal status.
You may need a copy of your business phone or electricity bill, translated into English.


    Starting a company from the Chamber and/or the Tax Office and/or any other authority, which depends on the formation of your company.

    5.The confirmation that the organization itself requested the issuance of the SSL.

    If there is a problem for any reason in completing Comodo's ssl approval, you will need to fill out and send, certified by a lawyer or accountant in English, your company's validity confirmation form below.

    6.The physical and legal existence of the legal representative.

    There is a possibility that you will be asked to fill them out and send them
