COVID-19 is affecting lives around the world, and many organizations are experiencing unexpected challenges and delays.

In light of this, we need a bit more time to prepare for in-housing the Verra Registry and have decided to postpone the launch to Thursday, 9 April, at 9 am EDT (new “go-live date”). This change will ensure a smooth transition and a successful start of the new registry.

For current account holders, this means that your registry account(s) on the APX registry will become inactive at 8:00 am EDT on Thursday, 2 April 2020 and IHS Markit accounts will become inactive at 5:00 pm EDT on Friday, 3 April 2020. Your accounts will become active on the Verra Registry as of our launch.

We have updated our FAQ page accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by emailing

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this delay may cause.
