How long does the PRINCE2 certification last?

Does the PRINCE2 certification have an expiry date like the PMP? If it does, then after how long does it expire? Is it 3 years (like the PMP)?

Also, if the PRINCE2 expires after a specific number of years, then what can one do to renew it? Must he take the test again? Or are there things similar to PDUs in the PRINCE2 world?

The PRINCE2 certification, unlike the PMP, has unlimited validity and does not have an expiry period.

You are not required to maintain it (once you have it, you have it, and nobody can take it away from you).

This is a usual concern for those applying for the PRINCE2, and that's why it's mentioned on PRINCE2's official website here: http://www.prince-officialsite.com/faq.aspx?category=PRINCE2+FAQs#FAQno113
