An applicant business that believes it has been wrongly or incorrectly denied Certification as an MBE or wrongly or incorrectly decertified, may file an appeal with the Carolinas-Virginia MSDC Board of Directors within thirty (30) days of denial or termination of Certification. The appeal must be signed and dated. The Certification Committee will review and make a recommendation. The applicant will be notified in writing by the President of the Board’s decision. The decision of the Board is final.

If my application’s appeal is denied, is there a reapplication process? 

Answer: Any applicant whose application for Certification or Recertification is denied and such denial is affirmed, may after one year, reapply for Certification upon the submission of information indicating a change in status or other circumstances that prevented Certification or which caused a denial or termination of Certification.
