In June, Google will update the requirements for the Business Operations Verification programme. Advertisers who are required to complete the programme will be notified and given 21 days to submit the verification form, instead of 30 days. Failure to fully complete the verification programme will result in account suspension with a 7-day notice period issued to the advertiser.

Advertisers whose accounts were suspended due to a violation of our Google Ads policies may also be requested to undergo business operations verification as a part of the account suspension appeals and remediation process.
