How do I get a Vigilance Certificate?

Verified 01 January 2022 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

The certificate of vigilance replaces the certificate of public contracts. It ensures that the contractor has met its reporting and contribution payment obligations.

The certificate of vigilance is a certificate issued by the Urssaf.

The certificate confirms that your situation regarding the payment of your social contributions is in order.

This means either that you have paid your dues or that you have not paid them but that this situation is justified in the eyes of the State (clearance plan, the amount of contributions is disputed).
