Default Police Certificate - 3 months is up soon?

Hello Again,
Nearly ready to get all our forms sent off, but I have realised, we have spent so long faffing about doing stuff, that my Police cert is going to expire at the end of this month, should I get another one done before I send the application off? (Can't see the cert as it is at home but my request receipt is dated 23/11 so it will be within about a week of that I guess)

I rang ACPO this morning and they say if they send me another copy it will have the same date as the original , so I am happy to pay for a 2 day turnaround if needed to get this off ASAP.

Thanks

It has to still be valid when it reaches CPC-M, so if the expiry of the certificate is 23-Feb, then make sure it's in Mississauga on or before the 22nd at the latest. If I'm not mistaken, the certificate has to be within 3 months when CPC-M receives the application; they'll ask for a new one if they need it. But if you can't get your application there before the 22nd then get a new one done.

Thank you, I will check the actual date of issue (I think it may be the 29th) and make sure I get a new one if we aren't going to make that date.

I checked the date of issue and it was November 28th so I will make sure I get this application off in the next week to get it there in time.
Thanks again for the replies.

Why is it stupid? What if it was 6 months validity and you had a major conviction dating back 5 months that they didn't know about? Even a 3 month validity can mean the certificate is incorrect by the time CIC receive it, but they need to give people some leeway.

Seems to make sense to me, 3 months is more than enough time for most people to submit an application, best thing to do is not order it until you're almost ready to send the application off.
