Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Before contacting CEAS Support, please check out our most Frequently Asked Questions for answers to the most commons questions you may have.
When ordering physical CEAS ID Cards, the CEAS system is a first-in, first-out system. You can check the status of your card printing by logging into your account and viewing the “Status” of each cardholder in the Card Management tab. If the status indicates “printing” this means your cards are still being processed in the print queue. If the status indicates “printed” it means your cards have been printed and have been shipped or are in the process of being shipped.
You cannot assign cards to employees until your application has been approved (see “Getting Approved”). Once approved, the Company Coordinator will receive an email with a log-in to the CEAS card management portal, where you can begin to upload your cardholders.
