We are currently Certified LEED-EB V 2.0. We need to re-certify it.
So can we use LEED-EB v 2.0 to re-certify or need to re-certify under LEED 2009?
If it is possible to re-certify under LEED-EB v 2.0 how long the certificate will valid?
Thank you.

Hello Anuththara,

The registration for LEED-EB V 2.0 projects ended on 06/26/09. Any new project registered need to use the LEED 2009 rating systems. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Projects can apply for recertification can apply as frequently as each year but must file at least once every 5 years to maintain their LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenenance status. If projects do not recertify within 5 years, the next application will be considered an initial certification.

What happened to the "Recertification Guidelines?" They were posted at one time and when I search all I see is a notice that says "Coming Soon! Recertification Guildelines to be posted September 2012." Will the Recertification Guidelines be posted soon? Thanks!

Is this LEED EB Reference Guide a V3.0? I was told to purchase version 3.0 for our recertification....have I been misled? We are currently Certified LEED-EB V 2.0
Thank you

Hello Kim,

Any new projects pursuing the Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenence Rating System should use the LEED Reference Guide for Green Building Operations and Maintenance. Many refer to this rating system as "v3" but the correct name is LEED 2009.

I hope this helps!
