Security Update for AWTA Electronic Test Certificates (eCerts)
AWTA Wool Test Certificates and Reports delivered as
electronic PDF documents or eCerts are digitally signed to
authenticate their validity and protect against alteration. AWTA has recently updated
the digital signature on eCerts to conform with industry best-practice. To
authenticate AWTA eCerts users must, when prompted, accept (or “trust”) the
digital certificate that is embedded within the eCert. If this is not done, an
error message will be displayed.
If you are currently seeing an error message on AWTA eCerts, you can fix it by following the instructions in the https://www.awtawooltesting.com.au/index.php/en/resources/fact-sheets
If you encounter this document validity error later it may be because the certificate you are viewing is not legitimate. To check it, you can obtain another copy of the original certificate for comparison through the https://www.awtawooltesting.com.au/index.php/en/services/electronic-services/online-certificate-verification facility on the AWTA Raw Wool website.
