Emergency Cancellation Policy

In the event of an emergency or administrative irregularity, the NBCE reserves the right to make adjustments in exam administration procedures, to withhold the reporting of scores, and/or to order the re-administration of an examination.

An emergency or administrative irregularity might include, but is not limited to, any natural disaster (hurricane, flood, tornado, earthquake, fire, etc.), power failure, technology malfunction, or other facility breakdown, which, in the opinion of the NBCE, could affect the validity of examination scores.
