Download or renew your DC using the one-year DC Loader Wizard

Your IT support person can help download your Digital Certificate, but you must enter your own Authorisation Code, Reference Code and Passphrase.

Follow these steps:

  1. If helpful to you, print out the DC Loader Wizard instructions attached at the end of this page
  2. Download DC Loader Wizard v3.0.0.14 (DLL 2MB) Version - updated 1 December 2014
  3. Follow the instructions to download or renew your DC.

Note: Ensure your Caps Lock button is off when entering your passphrase as this will cause errors when importing, exporting your DC, or signing.

Important: We are now migrating firms across to two-year DCs. Your firm will let you know when you are to be migrated across to the two-year DC Loader
