Validators and CCTLs,
As you are aware, NIAP-Approved PPs sunset in favor of new versions. Any products that wish to be certified against a sunsetting PP must have their complete Check-In Package submitted to NIAP no later than 3 weeks prior to the sunset date. VIDs with packages not submitted in that timeframe will be closed and any evaluation will need to claim compliance to the latest PP version.
In addition, please be aware that certificates are valid for only up to two years, not to exceed the date 2 years and 6 months from the sunset date of the PP. Evaluations against sunset PPs are not eligible for extension of Assurance maintenance date.
