Important - Please Read

We have partnered with an independent business credentialing company - Business Credentialing Services (BCS) – to manage the certification process. Benefits you'll realize include:

  • An online registration portal to speed the process and eliminate paper;
  • Accessible, knowledgeable staff who work directly with you and your insurance agent to assist you in meeting requirements and staying current; and
  • The opportunity to upload marketing materials to a secure database. Our managers will be able to view your materials as they assist our boards in selecting service providers.

Vendors meeting the requirements earn the designation of Certified Vendor. Two levels are available:

Certified Gold

  • Vendors who are Certified Gold provide additional insured language on the Certificate of Insurance that states "FirstService Residential and any of its managed Associations."
  • This classification allows all FirstService Residential Community Managers to present your company to their boards with the knowledge that their associations are already covered by your insurance.

Certified Silver

  • Vendors who are Certified Silver meet the minimum requirements but the additional insured language on the Certificate of Insurance names specific FirstService Residential managed associations.
  • This classification allows FirstService Residential Community Managers to be confident in presenting your company to their boards, but will require that you first provide appropriate additional insured endorsements specific to each community to which you would like to provide services.

BCS charges each registering vendor an annual fee of ninety dollars ($90) for verifying that your relevant insurance coverage and licensing meet all requirements. The fee is paid directly to BCS.
