Women Business Enterprise Certification (WBE) and options for WOSB/EDWOSB 3rd Party Certification

Two well-recognized programs provide national third party certification for women owned and controlled businesses. Both of these programs: have an initial processing fee as well as annual renewal fees; require an on-site interviewer to determine if an applicant has been credible in their application information; have been approved as Third Party Certifiers under the SBA WOSB/EDWOSB program.

For women business owners who are eligible, National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) program is acknowledged by certain corporations and government entities. The NWBOC certification can therefore be used in place of multiple state and local certification with entities that acknowledge and accept it.

Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) program is acknowledged by a variety of corporations and government agencies for women owned business that meet their certification requirements.
