From now on Comodo has prohibited changing company data in a Comodo certificate after issuance.
What has been changed?
Certificates with Organisation – or Extended validation contain company data, like a company name, address, and chamber of commerce number, that is specified when you order a certificate. Comodo checks this data before certificate issuance in line with strict guidelines. Until recently, it was possible to alter the company data in a certificate during its validity period by doing a reissue. From now on, this is not possible anymore: you cannot change company data both in CSR and in the owner contact. For the attempt to perform a reissue of the Comodo OV/EV certificate with changed company data, you will get the error “Company data cannot be changed during the reissue”. Limiting these options will reduce the chance for errors, and should result in a faster issuance process and enhanced safety on the CA side.
What should I do if I need to change company data?
In case the company data is wrong, you may cancel the certificate at no cost within 30 days after issuance, and order a new certificate with the correct company data. Adding extra domains to a multi-domain certificate during a reissue is still possible.
