Getting Certified Heading

Getting Certified

Fifth Third Bank recognizes a number of agencies for third-party MBE/WBE certification. We accept certification only from those agencies that recognize MBE/WBEs as at least 51 percent owned, operated, and controlled by minority and/or women group members.

To qualify as a certified minority-owned supplier to Fifth Third Bank, you must be certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) under the national standardized guidelines established by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) or a certified women-owned business enterprise (WBE). A WBE must be certified with Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) or the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC). We also accept certifications from government agencies that certify MBE/WBEs.

If you are interested in becoming a certified MBE/WBE and are not certified by one of the agencies listed, please contact one of the following certifying agencies:
