    COVID-19 - Essential service certificate

    Hi

    Being a Sparky and a bit slow thinking when it comes to government websites and thinking that it was slow and broken .

    The bizportal.gov.za does not appear to like google chrome - Been struggling since last night with it.

    Went on through Microsoft Edge and 5 minutes later I have an essential services certificate downloaded from the site.

    Hopefully helps somebody else from struggling

    Stay Safe and let's all be here on the other side of the virus

    It was basically a denial of service fault. The site was dramatically oversubscribed. The Download button and View List button have since been removed. Currently you wait about 12 hours for the certificate to be emailed.
    Chrome works fine on it.

    After initial website unavailable due to heavy traffic on Friday, I've also since managed to register as an essential service and have a certificate.

    Fact: (not an april fools joke)

    I decided to register as an essential service this morning ... it literally took 3 minutes.


    bizportal - services - covid 19 essential services - new application - enterprise number (1900/108100/00 sampe number) - if you qualify your details will be displayed - download - print.

    Essential service certificate during lockdown ...issued and updated before the extension.

    Level 4 lockdown as of the 1 May 2020 ...no updated certificate from CIPC ...do we just use the one issued on the 18 April ?

    They sent me the updated certificate by email.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    That certificate for the extended lockdown has no expiry date so it's valid.

    Cheers and peace out ... Derek

    Did CIPC send you an updated certificate or did you have to re apply?
