Certificates themselves do expire, and government regulations change the forms required. Generally, assuming you are talking for FEMA flood insurance purposes, you are SUPPOSED to get a renewal notice warning you to get it updated. here is info on that -

Contact your city planning department to see your local certificstion procedure. The actual survey shoudl not have to be redone, assuming your still have the original survey certification that was given you. However, they changed the elevation applicable around Hurricane Katrina time, so if yours is older than that you might need a new survey, becasue now the basement and crawl space are required to be above the floor plain, whereas before it was only the first living space floor.
