We have just created a new HONcode seal, for more transparency towards Internet users.

The OUTDATED seal has been automatically applied to all sites that have not been re-certified for 2 years or more.

Thus, by consulting these sites, the user will know directly that they have not been re-certified and that it is, therefore, likely that they potentially no longer respect the 8 principles of the HONcode.

If your site is concerned, our team is at your disposal for the renewal of your certification.

In order to guarantee secure access to websites, https security certificates are required.

During the certification and re-certification process, our auditors, therefore, ensure that your site meets this criterion in relation to Principle 3 - Confidentiality.

If your site does not yet have an https certificate, we, therefore, ask you to contact your hosting provider and update your security certificate, otherwise, the HONcode certification of your site will not be renewed.

Free security certification update solutions exist, you can get more information from your web host.

 

Sites no longer falling within the HONcode perimeter, which we have chosen not to continue to certify, now display the INVALID seal.

Indeed, for various reasons (e.g. a site that has evolved too much since its last certification, a site that no longer meets the HONcode criteria) this site is no longer HONcode certified, and we felt it was essential that this be clearly displayed on the site, for more transparency.

After the decision is approved by the medical committee of the HON Foundation, the webmaster of the concerned site is notified by email one week before its seal is modified. He can then either apply the modifications requested by the HON team to make his site certifiable again, or remove the HONcode seal from his site.  After one week and without any response, the HONcode seal and certificate are modified to INVALID.
